Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 3, 2020 – Croatian President Zoran Milanović on Friday met with representatives of the Croatian Chamber of Civil Engineers and representatives of structural engineers, many of whom volunteered to help after the recent earthquake in Zagreb, and expressed his thanks for their unselfish work and effort.

“Repairing earthquake damage is work that has to be carried out primarily by the government, that is the state. It is important that Zagreb be reconstructed in a quality manner, according to recommendations by professionals, and that we as a state learn from this natural disaster and pass legislation that will minimise damage in the event of a similar natural disaster,” President Milanović said.

Representatives of the Chamber and structural engineers presented their comments on the law on damage repair to President Milanovic, underscoring that the legislature should listen more to opinions and recommendations of professionals.

They also called for the establishment of an expert response team at the state level, which could quickly and effectively respond and co-ordinate in case of natural disasters because, as they underscored, emergency care following an earthquake cannot be based on volunteering and enthusiasm of citizens, a press release from the Office of the President said.
