In the Spotlight: Privatization Plan for 2011 The main objectives of privatization are to increase the competitiveness and efficiency of companies, to promote foreign investment and entrepreneurship in all areas, to increase employment and to improve the standard of living. All privatization that is to be carried out in 2011 will be based on the methods of implementation and the type of privatization. The companies that are selected will be adjusted to meet free market requirements which will include the following: the sale of shares and assets by public tender, the sale of shares through the stock exchange, and the sale of shares and assets by public auction. The models for restructuring companies in the area of public utilities will only be defined after the new Law on Utility Activities has been adopted and after a new strategy, aimed at involving the private sector in public utility activities in Montenegro, has been implemented. The Privatization Plan anticipates that, regarding companies that are being privatized by public tender, the resolution of social issues should be included as a contractual obligation. It is also expected that, in such cases, credible guarantees and termination clauses to cover the breach of contractual obligations will also be included. Furthermore, regarding other types of implementation and other types of privatization, with the exception of the stock exchange, the resolution of social issues will also be an essential and compulsory requirement. A public auction procedure will be used for the sale of part assets, shares or stakes in companies, on the basis of prior decisions made by their owners. Decisions on the sale of assets exceeding €50,000 will be subject to approval by the Privatization Council in cases where the state or state funds are the majority owner. Regarding the valorization of tourist locations/ companies through public-private partnership and the sale and valorization of former military assets, the tender commission in charge will conduct the selection procedure, based on decisions made by the Council for Privatization and Capital Projects, by international public tender for the following locations/companies:
