Croatian Delegation in London Chasing Investment

UKA Croatian government delegation will be in London on Thursday hoping to attract foreign investment when the first British-Croatian Trade and Investment Forum gets underway.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Joško Klisović will be joined by Transport Minister Siniša Hajdaš-Dončić, Minister of Economy Ivan Vrdoljak, Regional Development Minister Branko Grčić, and Croatian National Bank Governor Boris Vujčić, as they present energy, tourism and infrastructure projects to more than 200 UK-based firms.

The delegation will present around 15 projects to the perspective investors which will be ready to go in 6-9 months. Projects reportedly include the LNG terminal on the island of Krk and the Osijek Power Plant in the energy sector, and the Brijuni waterfront project and hotels Maestral, Imperial and Makarska in tourism. The Croatian delegation in London will also announce the tender for the new wharf at the Port of Rijeka, a project estimated at around 60 million euros, as well as the tender for new passenger terminals at Zadar and Dubrovnik Airport, and also the concession for Vukovar Port.

The forum is organised by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and UK Trade&Investment. Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Barclays and Ernst&Young are just a few of the 200-odd firms who will take part.
