British Ambassador: Croatia is a Country of Opportunity

Lauren Simmonds

Encouraging words from the British Ambassador to the Republic of Croatia as he labels the country as one of ”great opportunities”.

It isn’t exactly new information to state how popular Croatia has become for Northwestern Europeans in search of a place to escape the tempestuous climes of the north, particularly the British, with their recorded numbers increasing by 20% according to data collected back in 2016. Thanks to very warm and enouraging words from British Ambassador Andrew Dalgleish, it can be seen that the love affair isn’t a shallow one, and does not simply begin and end with the insatiable, inborn British desire for Vitamin D and seawater which doesn’t induce pneumonia.

The British Embassy in Croatia posted the announcement for the British-Croatian Forum on the economy of experiences and impact on growth and development on their Facebook page. The event will take place at the Esplanade Hotel in Zagreb on the 2nd of March 2017. The forum will be organised in full cooperation with the Croatian Tourism Ministry, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the Filipovic business consulting company and the British Business Centre in Croatia, by both the British Ministry of International Trade (DIT) and the British Embassy in Croatia. The aim of the forum is to bring together experts and talent from both European nations to achieve long-term cooperation, Dalgleish added that the ”economy of experiences is linking entrepreneurship, innovation, technology and creativity”.

Mr. Andrew Dalgleish LLB is the eighth British Ambassador to Croatia and began his fruitful career at the Department of Social Security back in 1998, he has previously served as Deputy Head of Mission and Director of UKTI in Seoul. He stated that it was his pleasure to announce the British-Croatian Forum under the title ”Economy of experience in the service of Economic growth and development” and that it will be opened by Croatian Tourism Minister, Gari Cappelli.

Mr. Dalgleish described Croatia as ”a country of great opportunities which is interesting to the British as not only a tourist destination but as a destination for business cooperation as well”. He added that the upcoming business forum is just ”another indicator of excellent bilateral relations between our two countries”.

The very latest research on the ”Economics of Experience” collected from the University of Lancaster (Northern England) will be presented at the Esplanade Hotel as part of the British-Croatian Forum, serving as both an encouragement and an inspirational business platform to exploit all the potential which can be offered in the field. Dalgleish noted that creativity and innovation are shared features of both nations.

With Brexit and the endless questions it brings looming, it is reassuring to see that both great European nations are actively pursuing an ever closer relationship, strong bilateral relations and the desire to build for mutual benefit on the considerable common ground that is shared.
