Croatia has announced its plans for a new tourism strategy. The government of Croatia is set to invest 20 billion Kuna (2.7 billion Euros) in revamping transport infrastructure, including railways, ports and airports.
Complete details of the project will be presented during the country’s presidency of the Council of the European Union, which begins in January 2020.
Construction of four and five-star hotels have been major factors contributing to Croatian success, with tourists attracted by high levels of quality. According to the ministry of tourism, there has been a 70 per cent increase in the number of four and five-star hotels in recent years.
The Croatian ministry said that it is now time to focus on wages and infrastructure.
“Croatia must work on sustainable development and quality,” said tourism minister Gari Cappelli.
The number of foreign tourists visiting Croatia reached almost 20 million last year, and the sector’s share of total GDP is approaching 20 per cent.
