Montenegro continued with its impressive growth in 2022, thanks to rising private consumption. This was a result of a tax reform that increased people’s incomes, but which poses a serious threat to the state and the healthcare budget. The future will bring more inflation, which will act as a drag on consumption. Although not yet at pre-pandemic levels, tourism is on a solid path to recovery. The lack of political will to unblock the judiciary is extending the already lengthy road towards EU integration. Fresh parliamentary elections may be on the horizon.
