The Croatian Table Tennis Federation and the Chinese Embassy in Croatia are at the forefront of the increased cooperation, announced the HOO.

The cooperation, established in 2018, includes sponsorship and exchanges of the coaching staff, which is very important for Croatian table tennis because it has the world's biggest table tennis power as its partner, the HOO said.

Chinese Ambassador Xu Erwen noted that China was particularly impressed with Croatia's excellent results on the global stage, especially coming from a country of only four million people.

HOO President Zlatko Mateša also mentioned the excellent cooperation between the Zagreb Faculty of Kinesiology and the Beijing University of Sport. He said that Croatia and China also cooperated in many other areas, citing the construction of the Pelješac Bridge.
