Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Ðukanović is set to pay an official visit to Slovakia on April 17-19, the TASR newswire reported on April 10. Ðukanović plans to meet his Slovak counterpart Robert Fico as well as other Slovak senior officials. The talks will mainly revolve around Montenegro's reform and EU-accession efforts, in which Slovakia plans to share its own experience.
Bilateral co-operation, especially in energy and energy infrastructure, will also be discussed, as will possibilities for the involvement of Slovak entities in development projects in Montenegro in the environment, tourism and agriculture sectors.
Ðukanović will also speak at an international security conference, GLOBSEC, due to take place in Bratislava between April 18 and 20. After Croatia joins the EU in July, Montenegro is believed to have the best chance among the remaining candidate countries of becoming the bloc's 29th member.
