The conference will be attended by a delegation from Croatia, including representatives of nearly 30 companies, with the purpose of being introduced to trade and investment opportunities in Canada, while also offering Canadian companies the opportunity to learn about the business climate and opportunities in Croatia.
A special opening address will be provided by the State Secretary, Ministry of Economy, Labour and Entrepreneurship of the Republic of Croatia, Mr. Ruđer Friganović. The conference will also provide case studies of successful business projects, affording attendees the chance to get first hand insight into doing business in Croatia and an opportunity for open discussion and debate during a panel session.
