    Weathering the storm: Montenegrin Employers organization helps Government in shaping COVID-19 policy response

    19 April 2021

    The COVID-19 crisis devastated Montenegro’s large tourism sector with knock-on effects on the whole economy. In 2020, Montenegro’s GDP decline of an estimated 15.2 per cent was one of the deepest in Europe. With the crisis showing no signs of abating, enterprises are in need of further support measures to be able to navigate this turbulent period. The ILO supported the Montenegrin Employers Federation (MEF) to conduct a second survey to track the impact of the crisis on enterprise, and assess the effectiveness of government measures adopted so far. Analysing the survey results, MEF proposed support measures for enterprises, some of which have been incorporated in the latest COVID-19 response package adopted by the government at the end of January 2021.
