A spirited celebration
Ambassadors and friends of Montenegro raised a glass of local rakia at Europe House as they celebrated just how far the country has come in the 10 years since its independence.
“Ten years is not a long time but Montenegro can be very proud what it’s achieved,” new Ambassador to London, Borislav Banović, told guests. “There has been economic growth and huge projects in the tourism and energy sectors will soon change the outlook of Montenegro. Our beautiful country is becoming more and more renowned.”
It was entirely apt that the celebrations were held at Europe House, with ambassador Banović applauding his “European friends” for helping Montenegro grow as a nation. “Thank you for your assistance over the last 10 years,” he said. “One day hopefully our flag with hang among others at the EU.”
