Our Government is taking a responsible approach to solving the problem and the measures we will apply will be primarily to retain jobs and maintain the liquidity of employers whose business is directly affected by the viral crisis. “, said Tourism Minister Gary Cappelli. According to eVisitor data, in the first 10 days of March, 30% less arrivals and overnight stays were recorded. He added that just last week, finance ministers discussed possible economic and financial consequences, as well as consequences for tourism. In conversations with tourism workers from various sectors, some state assistance or compensatory measures are expected in the transition period from the moratorium on loans, wage relief, etc.… It is certainly most important to maintain the liquidity of the tourism sector and jobs. Due to intensive monitoring of the coronavirus situation, sessions of the Tourist Board of the CNTB will be held once a week “Currently, all countries are doing analyzes, the situation is different, you see what is happening in Italy and in some other countries where the prevalence of coronavirus is much higher, ie this epidemic. At the moment, Croatia is holding talks with all interested segments of the Croatian economy. We had a meeting with hoteliers last week, and I instructed Ministers Marić, Horvat and Cappelli to consult with all sectors of the economy.”, Said Plenković yesterday.

He announced that measures to retain workers would be implemented soon. Cappelli also emphasizes that it is important to send a clear message that our tourism sector will be prepared and will provide all the necessary services to tourists who come to Croatia. he briefly conveyed some of the information from this meeting, but as far as could be read between the lines, it is obvious that we still have to wait for concrete measures, which, according to Minister Zdravko Maric, will be elaborated in more detail in the coming days. “The most endangered will be the transport sector, especially air transport, which is quite logical, and the second is, of course, the tourism sector. In both of these sectors, of course, Croatia will take appropriate measures. All ministries are currently monitoring the situation and we will then together, both at the European level and at the national level, continue to find ways to make the situation as harmful as possible for the Croatian economy.”, Concluded the Prime Minister. The meeting of Croatian ministers with representatives of economic associations and institutions, including representatives of the tourism sector, has ended. The burning issue was the impact of the coronavirus on the economy and the upcoming tourist season.

In cooperation with the offices of the CNTB’s representative office in the world, we actively monitor the situation around the coronavirus every day, and we reacted in accordance with the new circumstances in terms of adjusting marketing and PR activities in the markets. Scheduled promotional campaigns on digital and online platforms in most markets have been delayed. Until the beginning of March, we successfully completed advertising as part of brand campaigns, while pre- and post-season promotion campaigns were postponed in order to place customized promotional messages at a more appropriate time to target groups in terms of their openness and readiness to travel after stabilization.” said CNTB Director Kristjan Stanicic.last_img read more
