Croatian President Zoran Milanović met with Italian President Sergio Mattarella in Rome today. The last time the two met was at a summit of European presidents last month. Mattarella was on an official visit to Zagreb in 2015 when Zoran Milanović was Prime Minister. 

The two presidents discussed topics from economic cooperation to European Union enlargement.


“It was very nice, full of content without a moment's pause. Good topics were flowing from both sides, there are no bad topics. These were the border in the Adriatic and the exclusive economic zone, these are naturally things that the government and experts work on but it is something that must be closed so that we finally have, at least from one side, a completely clear border, because there are not enough countries with which we have resolved the border. Relations between Italy and Croatia are good and slightly boring, that's super,” said President Zoran Milanović.


Italy is Croatia's second biggest foreign trade partner, and in fourth place in terms of investment and the number of tourists arriving from that country. More than 200 Italian companies are active in Croatia and trade dropped last year, due to the pandemic from 5.6 billion euros to 4.7 billion euros.
