Croatia should “pay great attention” to Gulf countries that are significant investors, said Prime Minister Andrej Plenković on Saturday, who is in Dubai at the world exhibition EXPO 2020, reports Vecernji List.
“This part of the world, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, are all countries we need to pay great attention to,” the Prime Minister added about the countries that invest significantly “thanks to their oil fields.”
During his trip, the Prime Minister met with Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Prime Minister of the Emirates, with whom he visited the Croatian pavilion at the EXPO. He will also meet with the Minister of Trade of the United States Gina Raimondo.
Better yet, Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, was decked out in Croatian colors on Saturday.
“After the meeting with the Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed and the Crown Prince of the UAE and the Ruler of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan – a nice gesture of the host. Burj Khalifa is in the colors of Croatia,” Prime Minister Plenković said on Twitter.
Croatia will try to attract Arab investments at the Dubai-Croatia Business Forum, held in the city on Sunday, organized by two chambers of commerce.
