Zagreb, 13 January (STA) - Slovenian Ambassador to Croatia Vojko Volk told the Croatian deputy PM in charge of investments Domagoj Milosevic in Zagreb on Wednesday that the interest of Slovenian companies in investing in Croatia had significantly increased in the last six months, the Slovenian Embassy said in a press release.
Volk attributes this to good political relations between Slovenia and Croatia. "The expectations and plans of Slovenian companies which want to set up or enhance their business in Croatia are big and our job is to help them realise them."
The Slovenian ambassador expressed hope that the planned Slovenian investments would be carried out to create several hundred new jobs. Volk and Milosevic agreed that promptly solving any open issues was in the best interest of both countries.
He also hinted to the potential in tourism. "Tourism is surely one of the areas where our countries could join forces for common benefits," Volk said.
He was moreover positive about the cooperation of Slovenia's economic diplomats with the Croatian Foreign Ministry. Positive experience from last year show that the opportunities for the two countries jointly entering third markets should be put to best use, the ambassador said.
