In 2020, Slovenia continues to implement development assistance to Montenegro, which is aimed at strengthening the role of the helicopter unit of the Ministry of Interior of Montenegro within the establishment of a system of helicopter emergency medical services and helicopter police operations. Montenegro does not yet provide these public services systematically. An interdepartmental working group has been established to set up the system and will use Slovenian experience in its work and in inter-sectorial dialogue. For this purpose, in Podgorica, during 11–12 March 2020, 22–24 April 2020 and 3–5 June 2020, workshops and working meetings will be held and assisted by the experts from Slovenian Police and Ministry of Health.
The project is part of programme activities of the Slovenia’s Development Cooperation Programme financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and carried out together with the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Health and Police of the Republic of Slovenia.
