Croatian Tourism Generates €6.4B

In the first 9 months of 2012 Croatia generated 6.4 billion euros in revenue from tourism, 5.3% more than in the same period in 2011, according to data released by the Croatian National Bank (HNB).

The Ministry of Tourism were particularly pleased with the third quarter of 2012, when it generated 4.3 billion euros, 3% more than the same period in 2011.

“At the start of 2012 we announced that our goal was to achieve between 3 and 5% growth on last year. These results show that we have achieved our goal,” said Minister Veljko Ostojic, adding that 2013 will be a challenging tourist year for the country as Croatia enters the EU.

“Croatia will be on the world media stage and we must use the situation in a quality way, presenting Croatia in the best light to the eyes of the world,” said Ostojic.
