7 Major Sources of Economic Progress

1. Rule of Law (legal system)

Although the government in Montenegro moves very fast in adopting new laws especially those necessary for the european union integration process their process of putting a decision or a plan into effect is weak. Montenegro is starting to use community practices such as changing tax legislation to european union standards. In 2009, Montenegro selected a government agent for the European Court of Human Rights, at which more than 869 cases related to Montenegro were still pending in 2012. On May 21st 2006 the majority of 55% voted in a referendum for Montenegro to become an independent country. Montenegro has successfully created laws which helped to achieve such significant improvements in the field of economics.

2. Competitive Market

Competitive market in Montenegro has a lot to do with farming. people in Montenegro such as farmers often trade their goods locally rather then exporting the goods to other countries. In order to get a complete understanding of this concept, say Paloka had a farm where he sold produce and Ujka raised livestock where he sold cows and sheep. Instead of selling produce or livestock to their city or other towns, Paloka would give Ujka 15 pounds of produce for a pig.

3. Limits on government regulation

to open up a business there is no specific amount of money required. the only issue is being able to receive a license to own a business, it requires a lot of time and money. Registration procedures have been made easier that it just takes a euro and four days to process an application to register a business. the government in Montenegro have very strict rules of passing out licenses for businesses. the one thing the government does not have strict regulation with are thw types of businesses people want to start.

5. Monetary Stability

european monetary stability is the system used in the EU for stabilizing exchange rates between the currencies of the member states participating in the exchange rate mechanism and the balance of payments support mechanism. the original ERM was formed in 1979 out dated in 1999 when the euro turned into the official currency of 11 EU member states

6. Low Tax Rates
