The Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, received an inaugural visit from the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Sweden to the Republic of Croatia Diana Madunić today.
Ambassador Madunić introduced the Mayor with the successful work of a large number of Swedish companies operating in Croatia. At the moment there are around 50 of them on the Croatian market, and he stressed that the State Business Agency in Sweden was asking for more investments into Croatia.
She added that Swedes are very happy to come to Croatia, which is also shown by the fact that more than 330,000 Swedish tourists visited Croatia last year, and their most desirable destinations are Split and Dubrovnik. Mayor Frankovic said that Dubrovnik has had a very positive experience with Swedish tourists and that they are excellent guests.
Ambassador Madonić noted that the political ties between Croatia and Sweden are very good, but that they have the objective to strengthen them further, in light of the future presidency of Croatia to the European Union next year.
