Tito-Loving Chinese to Help Croatian Village Attract Investment Millions

KumrovecThe Chinese – Southeast European Business Association (CSEBA) is to help the northern Croatian village of Kumrovec find Chinese investors to develop tourism in the area….

China’s large interest in former Yugoslav President marshal Josip Broz Tito, who was born in Kumrovec, has prompted CSEBA, who will sign a memorandum with the village to seek strategic investment of around 15 million euros from China to develop a tourist-study centre in the centre of Kumrovec , and build a monument park in honour of the former Yugoslav President.

Tito is extremely respected in China and CSEBA see huge potential in developing the site of his birthplace. A delegation will head to China in April to target investors.

“All Property-law issues are resolved, all documentation is clean and facilities are ready for investment,”  said Kumrovec Mayor Dragutin Ulama.

Kumrovec is part of Krapina-Zagorje County. It sits on the Sutla River, along the Croatian-Slovenian border and has just under 2,000 residents with the village itself home to under 300. The birth house of Tito (pic above) (built-in 1860 as the first brickwork house in the village) features the Memorial Museum of Marshal Tito, opened in 1953. Next to the house is the bronze standing statue of Marshal Tito.
