New Cohesion Policy - Croatia
"Cohesion policy plays a crucial role in the public investrement in Croatia. It represents a driving force for important structural changes; it helps the economy become more competitive globally, reduces disparities and promotes inclusion. The EU will continue to support Croatia's efforts to improve the quality of life of its citizens."
"For already 27 years, Interreg has been bringing EU citizens together across borders, for example by helping build bi-lingual childcare facilities, or cross-border train lines or hospitals.The discussions of 3 July in Zagreb, will also focus on how Interreg VI can further support Croatia's efforts in cooperating with its neighbours for better living standards in cross-border regions". Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu
The rising number of tourists travelling to and from the region has put pressure on Dubrovnik Airport to serve its customers more effectively, safely and in a more environmentally friendly manner.
This EU cohesion policy co-funded project has taken up a variety of renovation measures to improve the overall efficiency of the airport with safety, technical and operational standards to satisfy the requirements of the future Schengen Area. A series of environmental and energy-efficient measures were taken which ensure that the airport – part of the comprehensive Trans-European Transport Network – satisfies standards concerning, amongst others, noise protection and waste management. The number of people employed at the airport is expected to increase from 447 to 676 by 2020.
