Montenegro. According to CountryAAH, Podgorica is the capital city of Montenegro. Montenegro continued to establish itself as an independent nation the year after the divorce from Serbia. The country became a member of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and of the Council of Europe. A defense pact was signed with the US and in October a so-called Stabilization and Association Agreement was signed with the EU. Thus, the first formal step on the road to being accepted as a candidate country was taken, even though much work remained, among other things. to overcome the widespread corruption. Shortly thereafter, a new constitution, which was drawn up in consultation with the EU, was also adopted.

The economy appeared strong and there were warnings about overheating. Direct foreign investment increased by 78 percent during the first half of the year, largely consisting of land and property purchases on the Adriatic coast. The economy was expected to grow by around 7 percent. Growth occurred mainly in the service sector, not least in the tourism industry.
The land in which the principality of Montenegro was formed later in the Middle Ages is full of contrasts. Saved in the century. VII from the Avar-Slavic invasions, the Latin element remained strong. Its political center was the city of Doclea (at the confluence of the Zeta with Morača) from which the whole region also took its name. Its history is very dark since the century. VII to X. We must imagine it in the connection of the Byzantine Empire, with a predominantly Latin population, surrounded and pressed on the sides by Slavic and Albanian populations, and open to the sea to Italian influences. The Slavic advance from the East determines the decline and abandonment of Doclea in the early Middle Ages. With the fall of the city also changes the name of the region that from the century. XII begins to be called Zeta, from the name of the river that crosses it. Just at the end of the century.
Although this organism may be considered the first germ from which the kingdom of Serbia later developed, the political imprint is mainly Latin and Western. In constant contact with the Adriatic, Norman, Swabian, Angevin and Venetian states, it is continuously and strongly influenced by them. There is indeed a moment (1208) in which he recognizes the sovereignty of Venice. All its cultural manifestations and literary products are also Western and Latin: the legend of the holy prince Vladimir (who died in 1016) and the chronicle of the priest Diocleate (1160-1180). The archbishopric of Antivari, built in 1089 by the antipope Clement III, is of Roman institution, albeit schismatic.
However, starting from 1215, when Scutari was taken by the king of Serbia Stephen, the first to be crowned, the Zeta was subjected to Eastern Serbian sovereignty and influence, which made itself felt especially in the religious field. But government is difficult for the Serbs and impossible to take over. During the whole century. XIII and the first half of the XIV continuous outbursts of revolt cross the region, so that when, after the death of Stephen Dušan the Strong (1355), the kingdom of Serbia begins to disintegrate, the Zeta almost automatically resumes living its own political life. Already in 1360 we find the Balsa rulers, lords of Latin origin, who gradually extended their dominions almost as far as Cattaro and Valona. But, almost simultaneously with their rise, there is a powerful revival of Venetian politics, and the formidable political factor of Turkish expansion comes into play. The collision of these two forces ends up crushing the state of the Balsa. Venice takes advantage of this by obtaining in 1396 from Balsa Giorgio Stratimirović, who could no longer defend it from Turkish assaults, the territory from Scutari to the sea. The Balsa family died out in 1421 and the Venetians and Turks remained to contend on the ground. The consent of the populations is for Venice, which during almost the whole century. XV victoriously takes the field. The Balsa family died out in 1421 and the Venetians and Turks remained to contend on the ground.
