National port development plan presented

The Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure on Thursday launched a HRK 3.85 million national plan for the development of ports of particular international economic interest for Croatia.

The plan will analyse port development since Croatia's establishment for the first time and provide a clear development plan until 2030, Deputy Minister Miro Skrgatic told reporters.

The national plan will be a strategic foundation for port development projects and the absorption of European Union funds for those projects, it was said.

Croatia has over 400 ports open for public transport and six are of special international economic interest - the seaports of Rijeka, Split, Zadar, Sibenik, Ploce and Dubrovnik - in which Croatia has invested over EUR 600 million.

One of the goals of the national plan is to make ports self-sustaining. The plan is co-financed by the European Union with 85 percent of the amount.
