ZAGREB, November 21, 2019 – Varaždin County prefect Radimir Čačić will again head the Alps-Adriatic Alliance (AAA) over the next two years, the Alps-Adriatic-Council decided in Varaždin on Thursday.

Čačić was elected Council chairman in Klagenfurt in 2017 as the first prefect from Croatia.

The emphasis in the next term will be to have big joint projects, not just small ones, financed from European Union funds, he said, adding that Varaždin County had also founded the Alps-Adriatic Association as an operational core to which all member states were invited.

AAA secretary-general Thomas Pseiner said he and his Steering Committee had approved 66 projects over the past two years, mainly for culture, but also for cross-border defence from natural disasters.

Čačić said there was interest for the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina to join the AAA.

The AAA has been active 41 years and comprises the Austrian regions Burgenland, Carinthia, and Styria, the Croatian counties Istria, Karlovac, Krapina-Zagorje, Koprivnica-Križevci, Međimurje, Primorje-Gorski Kotar and Varaždin, the Association of Cities and Towns of Slovenia, and the Hungarian county Vas.
