Macron to arrive in Croatia this week on first official visit

Written by  Nov 22, 2021

The French President Emmanuel Macron will arrive in Croatia this week for the first official visit by the French president since Croatian independence.

During the visit it is reported that Croatia and France will sign an agreement on the procurement of fighter jets and a new agreement on strategic partnership between the two countries. Macron will also throw his support behind Croatia’s entry into the Schengen border-free agreement and the entry of Croatia into the Eurozone with the adoption of the Euro.

The Croatian Government considers this important, given that during the French presidency of the Council of the European Union, in the first half of 2022, Croatia hopes for a political decision on admission to the Schengen zone.

Macron will arrive in Zagreb on Wednesday the 24th of November and stay until the 25th of November.

On Thursday, Macron, with the highest honours, will first be received at Pantovčak by the President of the Republic of Croatia, Zoran Milanović. The Prime Minister Andrej Plenković will welcome him at the Monument to the Homeland, where Macron will, at his own request, lay a wreath for the victims of the Homeland War.
