Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, January 19, 2018 – The reintroduction of the Split-Pescara ferry service was one of the topics discussed during a working visit of a Split-Dalmatia County delegation headed by prefect Blaženko Boban to the Abruzzo region in Italy.

The delegation spoke about the Split-Pescara ferry and other topics at a round table in Pescara where they met with the president of the Abruzzo Region, Luciano D’Alfonso, Pescara Mayor Marco Alessandrini and former Italian ambassador to Croatia, Frabio Pigliapoco, and representatives of the Chamber of Commerce and Teramo University, according to a press release issued on the county’s web site on Friday.

Having in mind that Split-Dalmatia County and Abruzzo Region are members of the Adriatic-Ionian Euro-region, the talks focused on macro-regional importance and the need to strengthen the role of its members in implementing the euro-region’s strategy as the backbone and foundation for future joint development of both areas on the both sides of the Adriatic.

In his address, Boban stressed the importance of the Adriatic Sea which can serve as connection and not a factor of division. It can be the link for many joint projects and mutual economic cooperation and even better connectivity, the press release from the county prefect’s office said.

D’Alfonso emphasised the global significance of the Adriatic Sea and expressed hope that the Split-Pescara ferry line would be reintroduced, which connected the two cities and added that it could contribute to strengthening macro-regionalism and opening new “Adriatic doors,” toward Europe.
