ZAGREB, 19 April (Hina) – The Tourism and Sports Ministry will co-finance the organisation of 16 major sports events taking place in Croatia this year in the amount of HRK 14.6 million.

A decision on allocating the funds was made by Minister Nikolina Brnjac after a public call, held for the fourth year in a row during which time 44 major events have been co-financed.

“Besides the sporting significance, these events also have great promotional and tourist value for Croatia,” Brnjac said, adding that some of this year’s 16 events were already recognised in the world, while some would take place for the first time.
