Croatia To Buy 87.4 Million Kuna Building In Brussels Despite Crisis

A Croatian delegation from the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs is jetting off to Brussels on Thursday to go shopping. Despite mounting debt in Croatia and an economic crisis that is having a widespread effect on the nation, the delegation are about to fork out close to 11 million euros on its headquarters in the Belgium capital.

The Ministry has, according to daily newspaper 21stoljece, decided to purchase a whole building to house its administration in Brussels as Croatia’s accession to the European Union nears. The Ministry would not reveal the location, but the sources say that the deal has almost been finalised.

“In the budget for next year the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs has 87.4 million kuna (close to 11 million euros) to spend on buying and furnishing its own space in Brussels. We will use that for the permanent Croatian representation ahead of the European Union,” said the Ministry.
