"Maintaining visibility, but also the targeted promotion of Croatia as an attractive and safe tourist destination is extremely important in these circumstances. I am sure that the effects of the show will be very positive and that our country, together with Dubrovnik, will be even more attractive to the millions of American as a safe and well-prepared tourist destination", said the director of the Croatian Tourist Board, Kristjan Staničić.
