The Croatian government held a meeting in the southern coastal city of Split on Friday to discuss nearly 2 billion kuna (€270 million) worth of investments important for the development of the city and the wider region of Dalmatia.

In his opening remarks, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said that contracts worth over 1.5 billion kuna (€203 million) would be signed in the meeting, with another series of government decisions about projects in the area worth an additional 400 million kuna (€54 million).

Plenkovic said this was the fifth time his cabinet held a session outside Zagreb, and that this way the government’s way to contribute to a more evenly spread development of the entire country.

“All we are doing is in a spirit of partnership and cooperation,” Plenkovic said.
The meeting took place ahead of the Feast of St Domnius, the patron saint of Split, marked on May 7, and was mainly devoted to projects related to the city and the Split-Dalmatia County surrounding it.

The investments involved include a series of road projects in and around Split, improvements to transport links with nearby islands of Brac and Hvar, improvements to the city’s Karepovac landfill, as well as cultural projects and investments in health care services.
