As Morski writes on the 5th of February, 2019, as the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds has stated, 39 contracts for Croatian island development will be signed on Wednesday, totaling an enormous 17,430,000.00 kuna, which is less than 450,000 kuna per individual project on average.

The Ministry argues that the goal of their Croatian island development program is to create the necessary preconditions for sustainable economic and social development by enhancing the quality of life on the islands by promoting the development of matters which are specific to Croatia’s many inhabited islands.

The beneficiaries of the program are both local and regional self-government units which, within their respective administrative boundaries, include Croatia’s inhabited islands and their associated periodically inhabited and uninhabited islands and islets, as well as the Pelješac peninsula.

The contracts that the ministry will conclude with local and regional self-government units in accordance with the decision for 2019 will fund 51 small capital projects in the area of ​​the islands and the Pelješac peninsula, for which the state budget provided a handsome 22.8 million kuna.
