The director of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Romana Vlasic, held a working meeting with the Ambassador of Albania to Croatia, Ilir Melo, and the Honorary Consul of Albania to Dubrovnik, Ivan Gjurasic, at the head office of the tourist board yesterday.
The aim of the meeting was to encourage cooperation between Dubrovnik and Albania. It was also agreed that representatives of the Dubrovnik's tourism industry would visit Albania to present the tourist offer of Dubrovnik. And at the end of March business workshops will also be held between Albanian and Dubrovnik tourist agencies to forge closer links.
As Albania is within driving distance of Dubrovnik it is a relatively untapped market that could help to increase tourism in the shoulder seasons, as well as the winter period, in Dubrovnik.
