This year's tourism season is expected to surpass last year's record numbers, said Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli at Wednesday's cabinet meeting.
Investments in the tourism sector in 2017 amounted to 870 million euros and in 2018 neared 1 billion euros, under a sustainable industry model, with investments focusing on better quality services, according to data cited at the meeting. The latest statistics show a 5% increase in arrivals and a 4% increase in overnights. Since the beginning of the year, Croatia has welcomed 14.6 million visitors and generated 80 million overnights. Bookings for the post-season are also looking good, government representatives said.
“All these indicators show that results in the tourism sector this year are very encouraging,” Plenković said.
