Transport sector note to the draft CEM (English)

The transport system of a country has long been acknowledged to be a necessary component in facilitating economic development and poverty alleviation-it is critical for a small country like Montenegro. For a middle-income European country and a small state, Montenegro transportation network should facilitate internal connectivity; promote economic diversification with tourism activities spread throughout the country. In the winter, frequent and long delays in traffic of the key highway linking the center and north can effectively cut off access to the north for hours, sometimes days, and during extreme winter conditions even weeks. This note, which has a limited focus, has been prepared to: 1) highlight the importance of transport and its deficiencies for Montenegro's development, 2) review and assess at a preliminary level the government's transport strategy, and 3) highlight major policy issues and bottlenecks for attention of policymakers. Government has clear intent to improve one stop border operations but further reform of the customs administration may be needed. A study to fill this gap may reveal clear areas for improvements as well as opportunities for increased involvement of local firms in the carriage of goods through and from Montenegro.
