On Thursday morning the delegation met with Croatia’s Minister of Economy Ivan Vrdoljak and other government officials. The Croatians and the Qatari’s have signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the field of energy technology at today’s meeting, which is the first step in the Qatari’s planned investment in the LNG terminal on the island of Krk.

Talks of the Persian Gulf country investing in the construction of a LNG terminal in Croatia started a number of years ago, with a Croatian delegation led by President Ivo Josipović visiting Qatar last year. The deal, which will inject much-needed cash into the Croatian economy, looks like it could be nearing closure.
