Tourist's flow to Croatia is stable because of friendly relations between countries
Last year, more than 122 000 Russian tourists visited Croatia, which is three percent more than it was recorded in the previous year, but at the same time, there was a drop in overnight stays made by Russians, by two percent. “Nobody has the power to invest as much into Croatia as Russia has, neither the European Union nor the United States of America. There are preconditions that Croatia must meet,” the Ambassador Anvar Azimov said on Monday during the Zagreb-Moscow economic forum. At the forum, which was held during the “Moscow Days in Zagreb”, Azimov said that Russia was ready to invest several billion Euros into Croatia, but Croatia must show interest and create the proper preconditions for these investments.
He pointed out that the relations between the country and Russia are stable and friendly. Good political dialogue has been established, and the links between the two countries are now excellent in many segments, but intergovernmental economic cooperation hasn’t been following that good relationship, at least according to Azimov.
