As Novac writes, almost 500 Croatian and Israeli companies participated in the aforementioned business talks and prepared the ground for further strengthening economic cooperation between the two countries in the future, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the economic woes it presents, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce (HGK) announced.

HGK President Luka Burilovic pointed out that the Israeli economy is among the most propulsive in the world, and there’s a lot to learn from them as they have some of the world’s best research institutions because they spend about 5 percent of GDP on research and development and 8.1 percent of GDP on education.

“I hope that these virtual meetings between Croatian and Israeli companies will result in some concrete agreements and that we’ll mamage to cooperate strongly in improving both of our economies,” said Burilovic, noting that the goal of this project is to export what as many Croatian companies do as possible to Israel and indeed to other such developed markets.

Tomislav Pokrajcic, the director of the Samobor-based company Jel-Tom, who also participated in the talks with Israeli companies, believes that there is great export potential for the export of their products in particular, such as ventilation pipes, greenhouses, tents and wave breakers.

His optimism is shared by the director of the Toptours travel agency, Marina Marunic, who hopes that the the good vaccination process of the Israeli population will have a positive effect on Croatian tourism as it will attract more Israeli tourists to our shores this summer and indeed in future summers.

“I know from previous experience that the people of Israel really like to travel. Over the past month, I have come in contact with three travel agencies from Israel and we’ve successfully held some online meetings, so we’re hoping for positive results from that,” said Marunic.
