October the 24th, 2023 – A handsome Gorski Kotar investment of over four million euros is set to be poured into areas of that region.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and Minister of Regional Development and EU Funds Šime Erlić recently handed over ten contracts from the Economic and Social Revitalisation Programme of Gorski Kotar, worth 4.3 million euros, to cities and municipalities in Delnice.
Plenković pointed out that this is a government project intended for the Dalmatian hinterland, Lika, Gorski Kotar, the wider Karlovac area and Banovina. Its primary aim is to be poured into sparsely populated areas that need the help of the state more than others.
“Gorski Kotar is a very valuable and special region, we’re glad that in this mandate of the Governmentl we emphasised much greater investments in it”, he said. When making the decision on participation in the costs of kindergartens, the government provided an additional 15 percent of subsidies for kindergartens in hilly and mountainous areas. This amounts to 350,000 euros for the wider area of Gorski Kotar, which significantly eases the situation of parents of kindergarten-aged children, Plenković pointed out.
This Gorski Kotar investment involves a wide range of projects
The contracts for this Gorski Kotar investment were awarded to the cities of Delnice and Vrbovsko and the municipalities of Čabar, Mrkopalj, Lokve, Skrad, Fužine, and Ravna Gora.
This very generous Gorski Kotar investment involves a very wide range of different projects. It includes the renovation of the Čabar Cultural Centre, the rehabilitation of ungraded roads in Mrkopalje and Lokve, the business incubator in Skrad and the toboggan run in Ravna Gora.
