Big plans for improving Croatian tourism using ESF funding

New Member State Croatia is gearing up to take full advantage of support from the ESF during the 2014-2020 period. As part of this effort, the ministries of tourism and employment recently held a meeting on funding opportunities with an emphasis on tourism.

Participants from the public, private and civil society sectors heard about plans to mobilise funding to strengthen human resources in tourism with the aim of raising its quality and standards. With an eye on added value, the meeting also discussed plans to promote tourism for special needs groups as well as education-related tourism opportunities.
