ZAGREB, May 27 (Hina) – Port authorities on Rab on Wednesday signed a contract for the reconstruction of the Pumpurela fishing port on that northern Croatian island.
This is an investment worth HRK 19.9 million (€2.62 million), and 75% of the costs will be covered by EU funds and the remaining 25% by the government.
The plan envisages rebuilding and expanding fishing piers and the necessary infrastructure, and the works are expected to start in two weeks’ time and to be completed in late March 2021.
The reconstruction of the fishing piers in Pumpurela is the first stage of rebuilding the whole Rab port, estimated to cost about 60 million kuna.

The minister was quoted as saying that during his stay he would also take stock of an HRK 150 million programme on investments to integrate the wider Imotski region.
