ZAGREB, June 1, 2018 – An international conference  “Stronger Schengen Area – Schengen as a guarantee of security for European citizens,” started in Dubrovnik on Friday in preparation for Croatia’s accession to the passport-free travel zone.

The introductory talks were given by the conference organiser, Dubravka Šuica, head of the Croatian EPP/HDZ delegation in the European Parliament and Vice President of the EP Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković.

“There is no better place for a conference on this topic than Dubrovnik. We will endeavour to answer questions with regard to what still needs to be done to access the Schengen Area,” Šuica said.

European Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos and Commissioner for Digital Economy Mariya Gabriel addressed the conference via video link.

Several state officials are attending the conference, including state secretary in the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs Andreja Metelko Zgombić, Director of the Intelligence Security Agency (SOA) Daniel Markić, and Chief-of-Police Nikola Milina.
