Tripkovic informed Ambassador Reinke about the way his company operates in Montenegro, investments as well as socially responsible projects the company has been implementing in Montenegro for many years. "The key guideline of our business activity in Montenegro is to use specific example and activities to contribute to improving the business environment and jointly address important economic and financial issues in the country. We are actively involved in the work of all relevant business associations because we believe that partnership between the economy and the state is a necessary mechanism for accomplishing long-term and sustainable results," Tripkovic said.

"At the same time, this title is both an impetus and an obligation to contribute from this position to creating even better business opportunities and improve the relationship between the private and public sectors in Montenegro," Tripkovic concluded.
