Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Frankovic, held a meeting via video call with the Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the Republic of Croatia, Andrew Stuart Dalgleish.
The topic of conversation was the readiness of Dubrovnik to welcome visitors this season, as soon as all the preconditions are met, such as the opening of borders, in this case British tourists who are traditionally particularly fond of Croatia and Dubrovnik.
The Mayor presented to the Ambassador everything that the City of Dubrovnik, the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Dubrovnik Airport, Dubrovnik General Hospital and other stakeholders have undertaken to ensure conditions for the earliest possible activation of tourist traffic, including the program to encourage international flights through targeted marketing campaign. He said that Dubrovnik was completely ready to accept British tourists after the opening of borders and the re-establishment of direct flights.
Ambassador Dalglesih said that tourism is a significant part of the economy in the UK, where the need to normalize economic activities as soon as possible is also emerging. He expressed his belief that British tourists will travel as soon as the basic preconditions are met and that they are able to do so, as well as that Dubrovnik has not lost a shred of its lasting appeal to British tourists and that they will gladly return. He praised the readiness of the City of Dubrovnik to welcome its guests and provide them with a pleasant and safe stay.
