”For the start of cooperation between Croatia and the USA, Međimurje County is perhaps the best place for some new opportunities,” stated US Ambassador HE. W. Robert Kohorst on Wednesday in the continental Croatian town of Čakovec.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of April, 2019, the visit began with a working meeting in Međimurje County, Božena Malekoci-Oletić said for Međimurske Novine. The US Ambassador visited the Međimurje Polytechnic where he attended the marking of the eleventh anniversary of the Polytechnic, the Technological Innovation Centre, and he also met some of Međimurje’s young basketball players.
American Ambassador Robert Kohorst, together with the Prefect of Međimurje County, Matija Posavac, addressed the present representatives of the media.
The American Ambassador said that the US Embassy is working on a program to connect different American companies to the companies here in Croatia. Over the next six months, certain measures and suggestions on how to achieve it will be implemented. The most important thing is to feel welcome in an environment where it’s easy to do business without too much bureaucracy.
He expressed his satisfaction with Međimurje’s attitude that every problem can be solved. He stressed that this is the most important thing that can be done to attract investors. What is equally important for potential investors is a well-educated and cooperative workforce who are ready to engage in work. In such an environment, companies are more than happy to do business.
“I like the way you work and prepare for investments and for the companies coming from the United States, and we’ll try to present this story to the American companies,” Kohorst stated.
Međimurske Novine asked Kohorst what the special reason for his arrival to the smallest Croatian county was all about.
“I heard it was the most beautiful county, and mayors have told me that the towns here were the most beautiful,” Ambassador Robert Kohorst diplomatically. But afterwards, he added that he was not a career diplomat, but that he’s there for business reasons and putting business cooperation at the forefront is his aim. He added that cooperation between the US and Međimurje County was a great start for new opportunities.
