Lauren Simmonds



In addition to EU cash for the Zadar business zone and an intelligent transport system, the University of Zadar also received a grant for the project of renovating the old Technical School.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of May, 2020 on Monday, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković presented the mayor of Zadar, Branko Dukić, with four contracts for European Union projects worth a massive 135 million kuna in total, and pointed out that the City of Zadar has proven to be one of the most efficient in terms of using EU funds.

This is a grant for the project of building the infrastructure of the Zadar business zone (to be called Black/Crno) in its first phase, and for the projection, development and implementation of an intelligent transport system and reconstruction of the road in the city. As touched on above, the University of Zadar also received a grant.

Plenković mentioned that during the mandate of this Government, 2.6 billion kuna in EU projects have been agreed for Zadar and the wider Zadar County. He added that ITU mechanisms have provided as much as 345 million euros at the Croatian level, and pointed out that the City of Zadar has shown the highest degree of efficiency in its subsequent use of European Union funds.

“With these four projects we’ve signed, we have covered all of the most important areas, transport, which raises the quality of life of residents, education, because the City of Zadar, in addition to being an important trade and tourism giant, is also an important university and education centre,” said the Prime Minister.

He added that the agreements also cover the field of culture, which is especially important, since Zadar is one of Croatia’s most important historical cities, and entrepreneurship with the Zadar business zone has also been covered by the funds.

“Through all of these four aspects, these contracts worth 135 million kuna, of which 106 million are non-refundable, will contribute to the development of the city and the county,” he said.
