ZAGREB, June 25 (Hina) – Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli said on Thursday that currently, 246,000 tourists were vacationing in Croatia.
“Their number is rising by 20,000 to 30,000 on a daily basis,” Cappelli said at a government session, adding that this was a sign that Croatia “is a safe and recognisable tourist destination.”
Cappelli made the statement as part of a discussion on the adoption of a regulation on amendments to the Islands Act, which increases the annual, subsidised quantity of water for human consumption for residents of islands.
The government today also reduced, by 50%, water supply taxes which investors pay when building a new building, or legalising an existing one.
Environment and Energy Minister Tomislav Coric said that the reduction was in line with the action plan for the reduction of non-tax and parafiscal levies for 2020, adopted by the government in May.
The reduction of water supply taxes, which represent the revenue of the Croatian Waters water management company, refers to all categories of users.
