Connecting Green and Blue Croatia – a permanent airline on the Dubrovnik-Osijek route is planned

first_imgVukovar-Srijem County Prefect Božo Galić noted that the transport of products is one of the main issues to be worked on together. Source / photo: Dubrovnik-Neretva County; Pixabay “We want to connect agriculture and tourism. Some products such as eggs from Slavonia are already used here. We agreed to work in two directions. We are taking the initiative to establish a daily year-round flight from Dubrovnik to Osijek. Entrepreneurs would benefit the most from such a connection, but they would also enable our citizens and guests to see Eastern Slavonia. We also agreed that we will provide one space for a distribution center for products from eastern Croatia”, Said the prefect of Dubrovnik-Neretva County Nikola Dobroslavić. U ponedjeljak je održan radni sastanak Dubrovačko-neretvanskežupanije na temu „Nastavak suradnje Dubrovačko-neretvanske iVukovarsko-srijemske županije – povezivanje ‘Zelene i Plave Hrvatske’“ na kojemje dogovoren smjer daljnjih aktivnosti u povezivanju ove dvije županije. “Until the construction of the VC corridor, which we advocate to the maximum, we must somehow solve the transport that affects the price of goods.

Do we want to deal with tourism or not? The Croatian Chamber of Commerce is demanding the lifting of the construction ban during the summer

first_img“We sent the request on behalf of construction companies whose working conditions were significantly hampered by the corona crisis. During the pandemic, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce managed to prevent construction sites from closing and to open shops for construction materials and equipment as soon as possible, which preserved activity and jobs in the industry. The complete interruption of all earthworks and construction works would make it difficult to recover and carry out the scheduled works, which would cause additional financial damage and consequently lead to the dismissal of a large number of workers.”, Said the Vice President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for Construction, Transport and Communications Mirjana Čagalj. Or works during the summer or tourism? We can’t do both. According to the current Construction Act, cities and municipalities can make decisions on the ban on works, but the Construction and Utilities Sector of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce says that exceptional conditions have been met due to the pandemic and that the necessary approvals and consents of local authorities must allow activities to continue.  On behalf of the construction companies of the Split-Dalmatia County, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce also sent a letter to the Mayor of Split, Andri Krstulović to Opara, in which he requests that earthworks and construction works be allowed in the city area in the summer period (from June 15 to September 15).  Opara supported the Chamber’s proposal and invited all interested investors and contractors to send their requests for the continuation of construction work during the summer so that he could submit them to the City Council for discussion. “At the moment, I consider it extremely important that the investments that can start the economy the fastest are enabled and encouraged, so I will recommend to the Council a positive solution to all received requests.”, Said Opara.  Do we want to deal with tourism or not? Interestingly, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce asked the Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning to send a recommendation to the local self-government to lift the ban on construction works in the summer.  Photo: Pixabay.com On the other hand, this year we feel more than ever how dependent we are on tourism, we are fighting frantically for every guest to be able to save everything they can, and at the same time we want to allow construction work. Who wants to be on vacation or disturb the peace construction work? No one, absolutely incompatible with tourism. Regardless of the current situation, reduced number of tourists and large losses in the construction sector, we simply cannot have both. “Lifting the ban would significantly help construction and related industries, without seriously jeopardizing the tourist season, which for objective reasons will be somewhat more modest.”, Explained Cagalj.  Insane and counterproductive. Let’s decide: Or construction works or tourism? You can’t do both at the same time. No, any negative advertisement, and especially at this point, would come back to us negatively multiple times, both in the short and long term. With all the efforts that are being made, we want to drive away that small number of tourists. Just imagine an article in a German newspaper and negative publicity: Germans came to the Adriatic and were greeted by construction work. Do we really need that? Otherwise, let alone in this situation? If the decision is to start with the construction works, then the tourist season should be given up. Yes, it’s that simple … Because we never, let alone now, need negative advertising and the departure of tourists from destinations due to noise from construction machinery. The construction sector needs to be helped in some other way, not certainly through construction work during the summer. It is possible that the infrastructure works could continue in the previous period with the observance of all measures.last_img read more
