Croatia To Ramp Up Culture Promotion In 2013 Overseas

Croatia’s Deputy Minister of Culture Berislav Sipus has told news agency Hina that Croatia plans to intensively beef up its cultural promotion abroad in 2013, with particular emphasis on promotion in the UK, Switzerland and Germany.

“In a year when Croatia becomes a full member state of the EU, we have organised in conjunction with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs three important projects promoting Croatian culture overseas,” said Sipus.

Croatian culture has been on display in France recently as part of the Croatie, la voici festival, and also in London with the start of the Welcome Croatia festival which will see a range of events promoting Croatian culture taking place in the UK throughout 2013 to coincide with Croatia’s entry to the EU.

“We are getting ready for the London Book Fair, where Croatia will take part for the first time,” added Sipus.

Croatian culture will also be promoted in Switzerland, where the theme of this year’s Culturescapes Festival is the Balkans.
