Ivica Todorić, the owner of the debt ridden Agrokor Food Consortium has issued a long awaited public statement, which is full of accusations against the Croatian state and Agrokor's emergency management team.
The Voice of Croatia's Ivana Perkovac recently spoke to Mr. Boris Miketić from the USA who has been appointed to the government council for Croats outside the Republic of Croatia. During the interview Mr Miketić shared his views on the position of Croats living in the USA, policy toward Croats living abroad and potentials in Croatian tourism.
Slovene Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec has said that he expects strong pressure from the European Commission (EC) on Croatia after Prime Minister Andrej Plenković's speech at the UN in which he accused Slovenia of not respecting international law.
The new Pangea Infobipa campus, built on the model of the most modern IT and university organizations, was ceremonially opened in Vodnjan last night in the presence of Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, Deputy Parliament Speaker Furio Radin and other officials and ambassadors accredited in Croatia.
Ivica Todorić has leveled serious and frightening accusations at the government, from claiming to be blackmailed to claiming that the government of the Republic of Croatia is assisting the Knighthead fund and that Ante Ramljak, the government appointed commissioner in Agrokor and Martina Dalić, the Minister of Economy, are directly behind the fund, wrote Social Democratic Party (SDP) leader Davor Bernardić on his Facebook profile.

Years ago, back when my daughter was going to preschool I had to contend with what temperature was the threshold for wearing hulahopke. ‘Tights’ in English, but the translation doesn’t really carry this garment’s cultural heft. Kids wearing hulahopke is serious business in Croatia, and I was left with the decision of when was too warm and when was too cold. This dilemma was compounded by the fact that I didn’t really understand the Celsius temperature scale.
We have a guest visiting us from America (fine, it’s my mom) and each time I go to the store she keeps suggesting that I buy things like condiments, paper towels, toilet paper, and pasta, as if we’ve used everything or are running dangerously low. On my way out the door she says, ‘get some toilet paper.’ And I imagine the thin remains of a single roll hanging precariously in the bathroom. Only to come back and find four… five… six rolls! Running low? What’s going on here?
Sometimes, well, a lot of times people ask me what I miss about America. And to mess with them I say something like the ‘death penalty’ or ‘Congress.’ But the truth is there are a lot of things I miss about living in the US. Actually, there are a lot of things I think I miss about living in America. When reality meets memory, the longing rapidly evaporates.
And when thinking about the Croatian approach to coffee and complaining I can’t help but see how it underscores one of the fundamental differences between Americans and Croatians.
