As Ana Blaskovic/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 10th of October, 2018, until the beginning of next week, an American business delegation who are considering potential opportunities for investments in the country are staying in Croatia. The US delegation will take part in a series of individual meetings organised by the Croatian Employers’ Association, accompanied by Croatian businessmen.

Among the aforementioned group of American business people is Blackard Global’s very own Jeffory Blackard, who deals with real estate investments, and Rick Santorum, a former US senator known for his conservative attitudes. Gentry Beach, who was the Vice President of Donald Trump’s national campaign, is also present among the group. The arrival of Blackard and Santorum is linked to the realisation of the Pašman Riviera Blackard Global tourism project, the total value of which is estimated at about 500 million euro, and represents one of the largest greenfield investments in tourism in Croatia.

In addition to tourism, Blackard and Santorum are partners in the Zero Global Waste company, which is devoted to the development of alternative fuel made from waste with the use of innovative technologies, and for the European implementation of waste processing technology involved, they want to pick Croatia.

“I’ve been developing a love for Croatia and its people through the process of developing the Adriatica village in Texas, built [based] on the Supetar model on Brač. I spent two years studying the smallest details of different settlements along the Adriatic coast, and inland, and the desire to help and invest in Croatia is my passion. Our goal is to create new, positive economic stories,” Blackard stated.

Otherwise, on Wednesday in Zagreb, the Zagreb branch of the Croatian-American Association of Croatian American Professionals Association (ACAP) was opened. Along with the aforementioned three individuals, the Ambassador of the United States of America to Croatia, Robert Kohorst, and Zvonko Milas, the State Secretary of the Central State Office for Croats outside Croatia, attended the presentation.
