The contract giving the go ahead to the second phase of Dubrovnik Airport’s revamp was signed today.
The Prefect of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Nikola Dobroslavic, attended the official signing of the grant from EU funds to continue the financing of the project ”Development of Dubrovnik Airport” today in the airport building. In the presence of Croatia’s Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, the agreement was signed by Oleg Butkovic (Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure), Tomislav Petric (Director of Central Finance and Consulting) and Dubrovnik Airport’s Director, Roko Tolic.
The contract in question, which gives the green light to the continuation of the second phase of the upgrades and renovation of Dubrovnik Airport, carries a value of 1.54 billion kunas. Some (but by no means all) of the projects that can now go ahead following the signing of the significant contract include the reconstruction of the terminal building, the infrastructure and the building of a multi-story garage and air bridges. The project in its entirety racks up an incomprehensible number of over 2.1 billion kunas and will transform the already efficient and very busy airport in the heart of Konavle completely.
Surrounded by an encouraging atmosphere of positive comments from Prime Minister Plenkovic and Minister Butkovic regarding the impact of the works at Zagreb’s Franjo Tudjman Airport on tourism, the Director of Dubrovnik Airport, Roko Tolic, stated that the desire was to do something great and valuable.
The signing of the contract was also attended by the Minister of Regional Development and EU Funds, Gabrijela Zalac, the Head of Representation of the European Commission in Croatia, Branko Baricevic, state secretaries Nikolina Klaic, Maja Markovcic Kostelac, Tomislav Mihotic and Frano Matusic, Members of Parliament Branko Bacic and Mato Frankovic and Commissioner of the Government of the City of Dubrovnik, Nada Medovic.
