In occasion of the official visit in Croatia of the Italian Minister of Economic Development, Mr Paolo Romani, the third edition of the Italian-Croatian Economic Forum will be held in Zagreb on 30th June 2011. The initiative is organized by INFORMEST and ICE (Italian Trade Commission) with the cooperation of FINEST and PROMOS and it is co-financed by the Italian Law 84/2001. The Forum aims at providing to the Italian companies, in particular to the Small and Medium Enterprises, a wide panorama about the opportunities of economic cooperation, new partnership and investments in Croatia.

Since 10 years Italy has been the first business partner of Croatia and one of the main foreign investor. The analysts believe that in 2011 the Croatian GPD will grow up to 1.4% -l'1,9%. The initiative is the logic feed back of the second Italian-Croatian Economic Forum, held in Milan in June 2010, and of the recent business mission in Croatia of the Italian Association of Building and Engineering Companies. The third Forum will be held in a very good period for Croatia, since the European Commission has decided the adhesion of Croatia to the European Union from 1st July 2013. After the approval of 27 Member States, Croatia will be the 28th Member State of the European Union. In September 2010, the Croatian government has approved the investment programs of national interests, called “New Deal”. The total values of the foreseen projects is 13,8 billion of Euros. The Forum will provide to Italian participants a good opportunity to know the Croatian entrepreneurial environment in order to develop new business cooperation in main projects about infrastructures and transport, energy and tourism/real estate sectors. Sectors in which the cooperation between Italy and Croatia could be stronger and stronger and it could guarantee the growing of both countries in an European perspective.
