ZAGREB, May 4, 2018 – The Croatian government was meeting in the southern coastal city of Split on Friday to decide on a number of projects of importance to the city and the county and Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said that this was a strong message to that area.

Speaking at the start of the government meeting, Plenković said that contracts worth over 400 million kuna (54 million euro) would be signed today and that nearly two billion kuna (270 million euro) would be invested in the area through numerous projects.

The meeting was taking place ahead of the Feast of St Domnius, Split’s patron saint, and was mainly devoted to the development of the city and Split-Dalmatia County.

Plenković noted that this was the fifth government session during his term that was taking place outside Zagreb. “All we are doing is in a spirit of partnership and cooperation,” he said.

The meeting was attended by all cabinet ministers, members of the national parliament from Split-Dalmatia County, County Prefect Blaženko Boban (HDZ) and Split Mayor Andro Krstulović Opara (HDZ).

“The government is meeting in Split after a full 14 years,” Boban said, announcing major transport infrastructure projects, such as the construction of two tunnels and two roads. He said that the focus would also be on ensuring sustainable tourism, extending the tourist season and connecting Split’s hinterland with the coast.
