The Summit is held mid-June in the Splendid Hotel in Bečići, under the patronage of the Ministry of Finance in the Government of Montenegro, the Central Bank of Montenegro and the Tax Administration of Montenegro. The Summit is attended by more than 200 participants – representatives of the ministries of finance, central banks and tax administrations from Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Republic of Srpska, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Albania and North Macedonia, bankers, businessmen and other financial experts from the region.
Owing to vehement support provided by our hosts, we expect this cooperation to expand to other areas of mutual interest. In addition to this, we hope that in the future organization of this event will substantially contribute to opening new prospects for the development of the entire region in more stable conditions.
The 10th Regional Summit of Governors, Finance Ministers and Tax Administration Directors, entitled Financial and Monetary Stability in the Region in Uncertain Times of the Prolonged Geopolitical and Economic Crisis, will be held from May 28 to 30 at the Splendid hotel in Bečići, Montenegro.
The summit - since 2019 organized by the Serbian Association of Economists - is the biggest annual regional gathering dedicated to financial and monetary issues, with a goal to stimulated dialogue and improvement of cooperation between financial institutions across the region.
The summit will bring together the key creators of fiscal and monetary policy from across the region, as well as representatives of the most important international financial institutions, and executives of the largest banks, companies and insurance companies. This year's gathering of the financial and business elite will also be an opportunity to exchange opinions on the perspectives of the region in dramatically changed circumstances, characterized above all by high inflation, rising benchmark interest rates, economic slowdown, and, most recently, worries over stability of the banking sector in the United States - not to mention ever more sensitive and complicated geopolitical situation, especially since the start of the Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The summit will be an opportunity to hear first-hand from the regional creators of the fiscal and monetary policy what they will do to mitigate the negative consequences that these global trends have on their respective countries; what measures are planned to slow down inflation, while at the same time preserving the stability of the banking and financial system in general, and to accelerate growth - all in order to avoid a recession, the threat which currently hangs over even some of the most advanced economies in the world.
