The Managing Director of the Agency for Investments and Competitiveness Mr. Zdenko Lucić and his associates met today with the Director of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber in the Republic of Croatia Mag. Sonja Holocher-Ertl. The main topic of the meeting was further co-operation between the two institutions on promoting and attracting Austrian investments and supporting Austrian companies that are already present in the Croatian market.
Austrian investors are second largest investors to the Republic of Croatia (from 1993 to the 3rd quarter of 2017 total Austrian investments amounted to € 3.9 billion). In the first three quarters of 2017, 349.4 million euros of Austrian direct foreign investment was recorded. With more than 650 Austrian companies already successfully operating in the Republic of Croatia, this makes the Republic of Austria an extremely important economic partner of the Republic of Croatia.
Agency for Investments and Competitiveness actively supports several Austrian investment projects in the Republic of Croatia such as Boxmark Leather d.o.o., Wollsdorf Components d.o.o., Lasselsberger-Knauf d.o.o., Kronospan CRO d.o.o. and one of the leading tourism companies in the Republic of Croatia Valamar Rivijera d.d..
