Cooperation between the Parliament of Montenegro and Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) begun by signing the Memorandum of Cooperation in May 2010, which has been renewed in November 2011. The cooperation has been developing intensively in 2012 as well. Furthermore, the implementation of the project “Parliamentary Strengthening Programme Montenegro” has started in 2011, when, following the successful implementation of the previous programme, the cooperation was renewed by signing a new Memorandum, with the British Council as the third signatory. The programme was aimed at strengthening the capacities of the Parliament within the four components: human resources management, internal and external communication, financial and legislative oversight, and the rule of law. Within the said components, trainings, seminars and study visits were organised, which enabled the MPs and employees of the Parliament to, among other things, become acquainted with the long-standing parliamentary practice of the United Kingdom.
Parliament of Montenegro and WFD have signed a Memorandum on Understanding on 19 May 2016, with the goal of establishing the Parliamentary Budget Office, in the framework of a two-year project funded by the British Embassy Podgorica.
