Podgorica – Minister of tourism and protection of environment, Predrag Nenezic announced yesterday that in the next 30 days the open competition for the long-term lease of Ada Bojana will be announced.
Nenezic who was elected for the chairman of te Open competition commission for tourist valorization of Ada, said yesterday for “Vijesti” that the investors as a condition will have to offer at least 2,5 millions of euros for a year’s lease, as well as 70 millions of minimal investments for the first three years.
Nenezic said that 400 ha of the island would remain a natural reserve, while on 80 ha an exclusive hotel complex will be built. He said that one of the conditions on the open competition would be the low construction on the island, which has to fit in in the natural ambience (style, appearance, interior etc.).
Nenezic added that the investors who use renewable sources of energy would have the advantage.
Ada Bojana nearby Ulcinj, mostly intact triangle island of the surface of almost 500 ha, on two sides has river Bojana which directly connects it with Skadar Lake.
The beach is from 30 to 35 meters wide, and 2.750 meters long, with the surface of about 75.000 square meters. Privacy is ensured because the island is connected with the land with a bridge on the north estuary of river Bojana.
The invitation for participation at the open competition will relate to investors with the proved financial capability and the experience in projecting, construction, management and marketing of exclusive tourist capacities. Last summer an open competition was announced for Ada, but no one applied then. The open competition was opened between the referendum and parliament elections, which influenced the investors to wait for some other opportunity.
Nenezic said that now he is expecting a great interest and better offers that the ones, which were asked for on a previous open competition.
He mentioned that representatives of the municipality of Ulcinj,, which will receive its share from the lease, will take part in in the work of the Open competition commission.
