Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, December 15, 2019 – President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović said at an election rally in Slavonski Brod that during her current term she had helped solve the problem of air pollution in Slavonski Brod and that she was helping the government deal with the situation in the ailing Đuro Đaković mechanical engineering group.

Grabar-Kitarović said that the problem of air pollution in Slavonski Brod, caused by a Russian-owned oil refinery in the northern Bosnia and Herzegovina town of Bosanski Brod, across the Sava River, was solved in talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Đuro Đaković is of special importance for Croatia. The payment of late wages started on Friday, 60 more workers will receive their wages on Monday… the government is about to launch the restructuring of the company. Its debts will be settled so that a new partner can enter the ownership structure. After that, new production will be launched,” she told reporters after the rally, adding that a US company was interested in establishing an overhaul centre for combat vehicles.

She also said that in her next term, she would focus on the issue of demography and the return of young people to the region of Slavonia, hit by large-scale emigration.
