Over the next two days European Commission President Jean-Claude Junker will participate in meetings in Dubrovnik and Zagreb. Following a dinner with Prime Minister Andrej Plenković on Thursday night, the bulk of Juncker’s visit is scheduled to take place on Friday.

Juncker was received by Prime Minister Plenković at Dubrovnik Airport today, who brought the EC President up to speed on projects being co-financed by the EU.

"We informed him of the progress made on the construction of the Pelješac Bridge, which is a strategic project for Croatia in terms of connecting the south with the rest of the country. A project that is making very good progress and which is also being co-financed by the EU to the tune of 357 million Euro," Prime Minister Plenković said.
