|ZAGREB - The Zagreb Infrastructure Summit was held on Tuesday to discuss the planning and development of infrastructure projects in Croatia, including the development of seaport, airport and railway infrastructure.|
Chinese investment is an inevitable part of the story. The founder of Z-Run Wellton Industries, Jiang Yu, said infrastructure was one of the main arguments for her arrival in Croatia. Especially sports infrastructure.
- The success of the Croatian soccer team at the SP in Russia has strongly resounded in China. We were eagerly awaiting to meet with the sports grounds where Croatian football players were raised. We were surprised surprised when we realized that sports infrastructure was quite neglected. Here we see investment opportunities. Not just in the construction of the football stadium in Velika Gorica, but in the construction of the sports academy, said Jiang Yu.
In addition to sports infrastructure, she announced investments in tourism, especially health tourism, and in free zones.
This investor, who has come through Croatia through CSEBA, has already signed the Agreement on the construction of a football stadium in Velika Gorica and a memorandum on a series of investment projects in Krapina's Toplice, and recently submitted a bid for the purchase of Hotel Zagorje in Kumrovec.
Under the auspices of CSEBA, the business association of China and SE Europe, an interesting panel was held on the development of the sea ports of the region and the development of the railway infrastructure. CSEBA special advisor, Alexander Sauha, talked about potential Chinese investments in this sector.
