Japanese technologies for a modern Montenegro

Podgorica, (MINA-BUSINESS) – In an interview with Yomiuri Shimbun, Prime Minister Milojko Spajic said that Montenegro can learn a lot from Japan, especially in the field of modern technologies.

Spajic graduated from the Faculty of Economics at Saitama University, which sparked significant interest among Japanese media upon his appointment as Prime Minister. He gave his first interview to one of the most widely circulated daily newspapers.

Spajic stated his high regard for Japan’s transport infrastructure and the way de-carbonization of the energy sector had been implemented. Additionally, he acknowledged Japan’s highly successful waste management methods, expressing his desire to establish cooperation with Japanese companies to introduce new technologies to Montenegro.

Spajic believes that, in this context, the opening of an embassy in Tokyo is crucial, and he informed Japanese media that efforts would be made to open it as soon as possible.

During the interview, Spajic highlighted the importance of realizing the idea of establishing a Montenegro Business District located between the centre of Podgorica and the airport.

Comparing the district to Marunouchi (a district in Tokyo where many leading Japanese and foreign companies have their offices), Spajic stated that the goal was to attract investments from international companies expected to open their offices for the Balkans and Europe in Montenegro.

In the final part of the interview, the discussion revolved around Montenegro’s influence as a NATO member on regional stability. Spajic concluded that Montenegro could play a significant role in this regard for the Western Balkans, given its excellent relations with all neighbouring countries.
