The Croatian-Turkish Economic Forum was held in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.

The forum held at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce (HGK) on the occasion of the visit of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Unye, focused on the construction sector. The forum was also attended by Turkey’s Ambassador to Zagreb Yavuz Selim Kiran, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Irfan Akar, and HGK Vice President for Industry and Sustainable Development Tomislav Rados.

In his statement here, Kiran mentioned that the volume of foreign trade between the two countries will reach two million euros in the near future, and that this figure has been set at 5 million euros in the long term.

Pointing out that Croatia is also an important tourist country, Kiran said that Turkish investment will be opened in the coastal city of Zadar soon.

Noting that the Unye Chamber of Commerce and Industry wants to open up to Europe, Akar said, “We hope to increase our trade with Croatia first and then cooperate with Europe more strongly through Croatia.” He said.

Rados also said that more than 40 engineers working in the construction industry came to a forum today from Turkey and indicated that they wanted to benefit from Turkey’s construction experience in order to repair buildings damaged by the earthquake that occurred in Croatia in 2020.

Meanwhile, the “Croatian-Turkish Business Forum” was organized during President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Croatia on September 8, 2022, where economic relations between the two countries were discussed.
