Until the end of Dubai Expo 2020

Expo in numbers
Expo from 1851 to the present day

The first World Expo was held in 1851 in London, in order to promote the world’s greatest achievements.

During 170 years long history, this event has become one of the most inspiring for humanity, and inventions such as television, telephones, mechanical computers have been presented for the first time in the host cities around the world…

For the purpose of holding of the event, the greatest experts of their time were inspired to participate in the construction of some of the most famous buildings such as the Crystal Palace in London, the Atomium in Brussels, the Space Needle in Seattle and the most photographed building ever – the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

The next example of a global gathering aimed at creating a new future, Expo 2020 will go down in history as one of the most significant events ever, and over 182 days of its duration, people from all over the world will offer the best solutions for some of today’s burning issues.

Focused on much-needed optimism, Expo 2020 Dubai is an event that will push all the hitherto known limits of human capabilities, while carefully taking care of harmonious coexistence with nature. Expo 2020 is the first Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, in a city that is synonymous with progress, in an environment where all nations of the world are welcome, to create a world tailored to each person!

Everything the world has to offer is based on the joint action of individuals and that is why Expo 2020 is an event that we will join, with people from all over the world, to create a world of better opportunities!

Why invest in Montenegro?

Our country occupies a strategically important position – it is located in the heart of Europe, in the central part of the Mediterranean region and at the crossroads between Europe and Asia.

We continue to work resolutely on EU membership and we believe that we will be the first next member state. We are the youngest member of the NATO alliance and we have met all the high security standards and thus provided a safe environment for citizens, the economy, investments and further development. Our natural potentials are an indisputable source of inspiration to all investors, and we can boast of rich and productive land with available natural water sources.

Foreign companies in our country enjoy the same treatment as domestic ones. Foreign investors can invest in any industry and acquire a wide range of rights in relation to a favorable business environment. Montenegro has a liberal foreign trade regime and market access of about 800 million consumers, thanks to free trade agreements with the European Union, CEFTA, EFTA, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine. The tax system in Montenegro is efficient, transparent and competitive. The corporate income tax rate is 9% and is one of the lowest in Europe, the Standard Value Added Tax (VAT) rate is 21%, while the reduced rate is 7%.
