17 September 2021
The final conference gives important recommendations for the future of EU Semester from SMEs’ perspective...
GRTU has this week met a small delegation from Montenegro. The last time GRTU representatives visited Montenegro was in June 2007 as part of an official delegation to Setinye. The delegation from Montenegro mentioned that they should shortly join the EU and as such Montenegro has to adopt the EU acquis communautaire. GRTU President Paul Abela told the Montenegrin experience of joining the EU.
They were especially interested in knowing what the business community thought, how they were affected by EU membership, the derogations and exemptions of Malta from certain EU regulations.
They also were interested in the involvement of social partners in the negotiations. GRTU explained the various incentives and schemes for businesses which are currently in place with the support of EU funds.
GRTU also mentioned that GRTU has nothing against Montenegro joining the EU and is available to provide support in the process. In addition to this GRTU had also signed a bi-lateral agreement for cooperation with the Employers Federation in Montenegro that provides support to Maltese and Montenegrin businesses when they are visiting the country.
