ZAGREB, January 18, 2018 – Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić on Wednesday gave a traditional New Year’s reception for members of the diplomatic corps, thanking them for successful and productive cooperation in 2017.

The mayor said the past year was marked by numerous challenges, but it was also a year of great successes and results. He said Zagreb was particularly proud of the fact that it had been affirmed as a significant business centre in this part of Europe.

“We hosted numerous political, science and cultural events that helped build bridges between peoples, cultures and states. I would like to stress how proud we are of Zagreb’s cultural projects and especially of being able, after 40 years of efforts, to unveil a monument to Ruđer Bošković in Milan last February,” Mayor Bandić said.

He also mentioned the anniversaries of friendship Zagreb marked with Lisbon and Mainz, adding that Croatia’s capital would soon mark 50 years of friendship with Saint Petersburg, 20 years of friendship with Buenos Aires and 10 years of friendship with Pecs.

The mayor also underscored the results the capital city is recording in the tourism sector and the fact that Zagreb had been declared the best Christmas destination for the past three years.

On behalf of the diplomatic corps, apostolic nuncio in Croatia Giuseppe Pinto thanked the Zagreb mayor for the reception.
