I have been working for more than 10 years in Montenegro in micro, small and medium enterprises and local development. From 2006 I was engaged as independent consultant / local expert in many projects related to advising governmental, business sector and NGO sector in programmes related to encouraging local people to open their own small businesses.
I have managed various projects in Montenegro, mainly for international organizations (UNDP, DAI Europe Ltd, Transformation Through Education Ltd, World Bank), as well as participated in international projects in Montenegro as independent consultant. I am very familiar with process of improving of business environment, mainly through working with various ministries in the Government of Montenegro.

Since July 2009, I have been engaged by the UNDP office in Montenegro, managing 3 projects.

In this area, I served as Project Manager for the project: Strategy for Sustainable Economic Growth in Montenegro trough Introduction of Clusters by the end of 2016.
