USAID Celebrates Success as Programs End
June 6, 2013

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will mark the conclusion of its assistance in Montenegro with a June 12 celebration hosted by Ambassador Sue K. Brown at Vladin Dom in Cetinje. 

The June 12 gala signifies that Montenegro is on the path toward European Union accession following significant economic, good governance, and democratic strides.  USAID has provided $243 million worth of assistance to Montenegro over the past 12 years.  It has successfully completed 17 major programs and thousands of smaller projects after officially opening in Montenegro in 2001.  Its projects have impacted virtually every municipality in the country.

"USAID helped stimulate Montenegro's economy, promote government transparency, and assist Montenegro meet the requirements for World Trade Organization and EU membership," said USAID Mission Director Susan K. Fritz.

Montenegro has achieved its assistance targets so it no longer needs U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) support.  This follows $243 million worth of assistance over the past 12 years.  Since USAID’s programs were launched in 2001, nearly two dozen of major development programs with thousands of sub-projects have been completed, impacting virtually every municipality in the country.

USAID/Montenegro has released a book chronicling its assistance in Montenegro between 2001 and 2013.
