PM, Bank Governor And Tycoons Meet In Secret


Croatia’s Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic has met behind closed doors in secret with a handful of the nation’s business leaders, raising speculation in the Croatian media about what was actually discussed at the meeting.

Globus have reported that the informal evening meeting was the initiative of Emil Tedeschi, owner of food and pharmaceutical giants Atlantic grupa. Joining Tedeschi were Ivica Todoric, owner of Croatia’s largest privately owned company Agrokor, and Ante Vlahovic, owner of Adris grupa , the largest tobacco company in Croatia.

Also at the meeting was the governor of the Croatian National Bank Boris Vujcic, reports Globus. “It was not a meeting organised by the Croatian Business Association, it was an informal meeting organised by Emil Tedeschi, and I can not tell you any more,” a source was quoted.

The business community in Croatia has recently criticised the government for being anti-business and no doubt the “junk” status issued by credit rating house Standard & Poor’s last week has caused further concern. For now, what was discussed behind closed doors remains a mystery.
