Malaysian businessmen urged to explore opportunities in Croatia

KUALA LUMPUR: Croatia's Ambassador to Malaysia Zeljko Bosnjak has urged Malaysian businessmen to explore opportunties in his country.

In making the call, Bosnjak said that despite top level visits between the both sides in the past after establishing diplomatic ties in 1995, there had been not much development in terms of trade and investment between the two countries.

Investment and business potential can be explored in the energy sector, road construction, wood and chemical industries and pharmaceutical, among others, he told Bernama in a recent interview here.

He said areas such as tourism offer good opportunities, especially construction or upgrading of hotels and resorts, particularly around the scenic Adriatic Sea.

Croatia has 1,777 kilometres of mainland of the Adriatic shoreline with 1,185 islands, islets and reefs as well as some of Europe's oldest historical places.

Croatia is ranked as the 18th most popular tourist destination in the world and tourism is an important source of revenue. The country received more than 11 million foreign tourists in 2008.-- Bernama
