ZAGREB, August 19, 2019 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, who on Sunday visited the Istrian town of Barban, said that many projects in the tourist trade and infrastructure in Istria were nearing completion and that all ministries were engaged in their implementation.

“Therefore, claiming that Istria is discriminated against is both factually incorrect and indecent,” the premier said in his response to questions from the press regarding Pula Mayor Boris Miletić’s claim that this Croatian region was being discriminated against when it comes to the issue of the debt-ridden Uljanik dock.

As for the future of the ailing Uljanik company, the premier said that he was always open to dialogue.

He recalled that the government had paid 4.5 billion kuna for the guarantees of Uljanik.

The situation is such that Uljanik is in official receivership, and when it comes to the 3.Maj shipyard, I think that we have found a solution for completing the ships under construction in a “financially neutral manner”, and for steps to be made towards the restructuring. In that process Uljanik can participate, he added.

The premier also reassured the press that his cabinet would find a solution for the completion of the construction of the general hospital in the biggest Istrian city of Pula.

“We are holding talks and we are going to find a solution as we have found a solution for the hospital in Rijeka.”

“The hospital in Pula is important an we will settle that. The policy of our government is to develop good, sincere and open partnership and dialogue with all counties, cities and municipalities. All know that,” Plenković said before attending the Prstenac tournament’s final race on Sunday evening.
