Budva, President of Montenegro Opens the 39th EPRA Meeting
The President of Montenegro Filip Vujanović opened tonight the 39th EPRA meeting in Budva.

The following is the text of the speech by the President:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Development of every field has a historical significance. Since Volujica, in 1904, and the development of the first radio-telegraphic station in this part of Europe until today, the history of Montenegro’s scientific and technological era has been written, always trying, even in this way, to develop its connections with the world. Today, 110 years later, Montenegro as a sovereign country is committed to European and Euro-Atlantic integration, firmly believing in all fundamental principles of democracy and freedom.

Considering the territory and the number of citizens, Montenegro is among the countries with the largest number of electronic media in Europe. Now more than ever, they are playing a key role in our society and, because of their influence on the public, they are of vital importance for the democratic processes in Montenegro. New media legislation has provided them with an independent status, guaranteed by the law, independent sources of funding, but also made them directly responsible to the public, i.e. citizens, as defined by the law. Consequently, they assumed great responsibility to harmonize the freedom of expression with the highest European standards. The state of Montenegro has been continuously supporting this difficult transition process, but it cannot and should not be the only guarantee of media freedom. Therefore, by accepting professional standards and establishing self-regulatory bodies, electronic media must support this process of democratization, guaranteeing the protection of citizens’ freedom and rights in this field at the level defined by international documents on human rights. more
