International Market

Montenegro, with population of 700,000 and become independent just 4 years ago, is an unexpected name on the international property development & investment market.  The country has established a reputation as an up-market property and tourism location.  Investors have poured money into projects such as refurbishment of Sveti Stefan, an island hotel complex frequently visited by Hollywood stars in the 60s; and Porto Montenegro, a huge new marina complex for super-yachts built at Tivat on the beautiful coastline.  Investors are attracted by an open economy, no restriction on capital, low taxes and Montenegro's unilateral use of the euro as its currency.

Canada's economy is growing strongly.  Growth rate is expected to be 3.3% in 2010 & 3.5% in 2011.  The infrastructure project market, particularly PPP (public-private-partnership) projects, is busy.
  Large projects being built or planned include SE Stoney Trail - Alberta; McGill Hospital & CHUM Research Centre - Quebec; Road projects - Quebec & New Brunswick; Pan-American Games - Toronto; Hospital projects - Ontario & BC; South & North Fraser Perimeter Road projects - BC; Windsor-Essex Parkway - Ontario; Transit & Subway projects - Ontario.
As world economy improves, developers & investors are zooming in to Canada for opportunities.

Project Manager News

Is Virtual Project Management possible?  The answer is yes.  With widespread and high speed internet infrastructure, virtual project management is possible.  This means a team of project professionals in different locations can manage project, produce design, collaborate, implement and oversee progress of a project in a different geographical area, whether it is close by or far away from the project manager and the design team.
