Money No Object For Croatia’s EU Headquarters

With debt mounting and a constant message recently from Croatia’s government that there is simply no money to invest in local infrastructure, it seems that no expense will be spared when it comes to housing Croatia’s political representatives abroad in Brussels.

The Croatian government are set to write out a cheque for 11.5 million euros to secure a 4,000 square metre building in the heart of Brussels to use as its headquarters as it enters the European Union.

Parliament will meet today and are expected to give approval for the purchase of the building which includes 7 floors and a 4-level basement/garage. The 11.5 million euros building, which was valued at 13.7 million euros 5 years ago, is located on Joseph II street in Brussel’s European quarter, reports PolitikaPlus.
