The current Croatian Tourism Strategy is valid until 2020 and in the next month the Ministry of Tourism will announce a competition for the selection of contractors for the development of a new Croatian Tourism Strategy.
The current tourism development strategy was drawn up by the Institute of Tourism, and Horwath HTL consulting companies as well as HD Consulting.
Asked what the direction of the future development of Croatian tourism should be the Minister of Tourism, Gari Cappelli commented that “Let's not compare ourselves with Turkey and similar destinations, Croatia is not and will never be the same. We need to be aware that in the main season we can no longer expect a 10 to 15 percent growth in tourist numbers each year.”
“Reaching 20 million tourists and 100 million nights with our infrastructure is our maximum, Croatia needs to develop the pre and post seasons and to raise the quality,” concluded Cappelli.
