Joint Border Crossing in Bijelo Polje – Symbol of Regional Cooperation

Bijelo Polje, 15 May – Rail border crossing in Bijelo Polje will house authorities of Montenegro and Serbia under the same roof and speed up the procedures without the need for train to stop at two borders. Together with the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Capital Investments Ervin Ibrahimović, EU Delegation and municipality representatives, Director Zakonjšek visited the new facilities that will, once operational, become a symbol of good regional cooperation.

“Inadequate transport networks and lack of coordination seriously limit the connectivity of our citizens, but also producers and consumers with global and regional markets. Solutions to these issues require investments in infrastructure, but also better cooperation between neighbors. The station in Bijelo Polje will become a great example of cooperation between Montenegro and Serbia. I am glad that with today’s event we showed the importance of EU investments in the region,” Director Zakonjšek said during the visit.

“It is my pleasure to visit the final works on the project today, which is a true example of interdepartmental cooperation aimed at improving regional connectivity. Facilitating border crossings sends a message that through joint efforts towards the establishment of a single economic space in the Western Balkans, we are preparing for the membership in the European Union”, Deputy Prime Minister Ibrahimović said.
