Croatian Minister of Tourism Veljko Ostojic has expressed his satisfaction with the current tourist season in Croatia, and announced that next year the government will invest between 2.5 and 3 billion kuna (between 350 - 400 million Euros) in tourism, writes daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
"That kind of investment is needed for our tourism, for hotels which will be precisely positioned on the market, which will raise the quality of the destination," said the Minister.
Ostojic was speaking in the Istrian town of Porec, where he met with the town's Mayor Edi Stifanic and representatives from Porec's tourism industry. Ostojic also touched on the tourist season results for Istria thus far, stating that the region has enjoyed 3 per cent more tourists and 5 per cent more overnight stays than last year. Ostojic was especially happy with the fact that 50 per cent of that growth was accomplished in the pre season.
Ostojic also talked about investment in camping sites in Croatia, which he says will quickly yield a return on investment. 1.5 billion kuna (200 million Euros) of the intended investment next year will come via credit from the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
