Ulcinj set to become a new Regional Centre for Tourism By 2030
30.08.2021As Montenegro continues to recover from the global Covid Pandemic, posting strong visitor numbers of 740,000 tourists in July, the government met recently to discuss how they can further capitalize on increased demand for tourism to the country.
Recognising that Montenegro is becoming ever more popular for holidaymakers and International home buyers, having recently been voted in National Geographic as the second-best place to holiday in 2021, the government have now set their eyes on Ulcinj to become the newest Regional Centre for Tourism by the year 2030.
Following a meeting between the Deputy Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic, the Minister of Economic Development Jakov Milatovic, the Director of the Administration for Inspection Affairs, Chairman of the Board of PE and the Hoteliers of Ulcinj it was obvious that not only had the tourist season got off to a fabulous start, but more could be done to meet demand, and now was the perfect opportunity to start preparing for the years ahead. Abazovic commented ‘Ulcinj is Montenegro’s biggest development opportunity in 2030, and we want this city to become a large regional centre of tourism’.
Of the 740,000 tourists who were welcomed into Montenegro in July, 380,000 visited within the first 15 days, which is a 5% increase in 2019, and by the end of the Summer season, it’s hoped that total visitor numbers will have surpassed pre-pandemic levels which is very positive news indeed for a country who’s tourism industry accounts for around 25% of its total GDP.
Just on a final note, Montenegro’s growth has been huge, especially over the last 9 years. Looking at official stats from Knoema (https://knoema.com/atlas/Montenegro/topics/Tourism/Travel-and-Tourism-Total-Contribution-to-GDP/Contribution-of-travel-and-tourism-to-GDP-percent-of-GDP) in 2010 the Tourism Industry accounted for just 12.5% of its total GDP, and in 2019 it accounted for 21.7%, a whopping 9.2% increase, so with this upwards trend showing no signs of slowing down (apart from the impact of Covid) it’s exciting times, and the future looks bright, especially for Ulcinj!
Last year we decided to find a new home close to the sea. It was quite difficult in the beginning to make the right choice. Once we found CMM Company was a great luck! We immediately received detailed consultation on the country and purchase opportunities. Being attracted by Kotor - one of the most amazing parts of the coast, we decided to take a family trip and maybe make our dream of new home come true. As just discoverers of Montenegro, we were accepted like at home which was a one more pleasant surprise. The most important, we received all detailed information about country regions and procedure of buying property during the first few days. And how beautiful the car journeys were! Difficult choice, but when you find the home you want you can't refuse it. CMM did best to help us with this finding! All the purchase procedure passed well with CMM professional work! Now we are happy owners of a wonderful house with a Kotor bay view, being perfectly served by CMM Management company (of course, we've chosen CMM as professional house manager). Hope our friends and relatives would also move to Montenegro with the CMM help soon !!!

Dear CMM team, just to leave a small feedback on the superjob you've done ! It was not an easy period for us with a child. As we had to sell our home property and decided alternatively buy some nice house at Montenegrin coast. We were truly frightened at the start. My colleague, being your customer, gave a good recommendation, so, we called the office. All the part, covering seach and purchase in Montenegro, was quickly, safe and perfectly done. Good luck and further success and propsperity to the company! Special thanks to Alexander and Snezana for professional approach!

Always thought that buying property abroad isnervous and difficult task. CMM changed my mindset. I felt support and care in every step: from the first call arranged till receiving the Owner's list. I am also happy about how they make my apartment management. Now, whenever me or my family members come home to Montenegro, I am absolutely confident that my apartment is in the best condition!

Good day! The first time we met professionally organised step by step work with property in the Southern country. It was a nice surprise for me and my spouse.

Professional manager (Petar Kuzmich) helped us to avoid mistaken choice and provided a really wide number of options to choose from. We felt and still do absolutely safe while buying a house. Happy to come across with your company! Will recommend to our neighboors and family friends in first Norway home.
