DAMAC International Chairman, Hussain Sajwani, was received by Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, after a tour of the country where he visited a number of cities popular among tourists along Croatia’s scenic Adriatic coast.
Sajwani said, “It was a pleasure meeting with President Grabar-Kitarovic. We discussed the many investment opportunities that Croatia presents, as it continues to become a hot spot for tourists from all over the world, while providing a business-friendly environment that is attractive to foreign companies. Croatia offers a wide range of travel options that present numerous investment prospects in sectors like coastal residential development, hospitality, leisure, sports and entertainment, as well services targeting inbound visitors. Its ability to continue to attract increasing visitor numbers demonstrates the country’s appeal to a broader traveller base by providing unique experiences, as well as a stable political, economic and social setting that encourages foreign direct investment.”
