Add to that the tourism benefits – the potential is huge.The port also has another role to play, in that we have to meet our climate change objectives and one of the ways we can do that is transport and reducing road haulage – a lot could be directed through Shannon Foynes Port.He described the meeting as “very encouraging”.“The presentation by company chief executive Pat Keating and former TD Michael Finucane who is on the board was very well received here by MEPs, EU Commission officials and others in Brussels.

Aquatika and NP Una signed an agreement on joint cooperation and synergy

first_imgThis is not the first time that we see the connection and synergy of JU Aquatika in action. Thus, last year a joint cooperation was achieved in the field of tourism of three public institutions from Karlovac County: Public Institution Baraćeva špilja and Visitor Center Ivana’s Fairytale House and Public Institution Aquatika – Freshwater Aquarium Karlovac, as well as cooperation of Aquatika with Plitvice Lakes National Park.  The public institution Aquatika and the Una National Park from Bihać signed an agreement on joint cooperation in the field of tourism, joint promotion, scientific work, monitoring, but also through all other joint projects. We believe that through various joint activities we will be able to increase the number of visits, but also exchange visitors. We will promote the National Park to our visitors, and they will give Aquatika to their visitors, pointed out the director of JU Aquatika, Margarita Maruškić Kulaš, and added: “Within the framework of this Agreement, we will today agree on joint promotion and cooperation on various project activities of both institutions. The most important three points in this cooperation are joint projects in the field of mutual promotion, joint projects in science and research, in Una, and joint promotion on the development of tourism in both regions and I believe that together we will achieve increased visits ” pointed out Maruškić Kulaš. JU Aquatika The destination consists of all participants, and if there is no synergy and coordination, there is no quality tourist product. What is most important in the whole story, the motive for coming is not accommodation, but just quality, diverse and authentic content. “We can say that this is a natural sequence that has long connected our region, especially Bihać and Bosnian Krajina with Banija and Kordun, or Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Una River, which is our common resource, our common river, which is largely a border river. However, we believe that rivers connect and should connect people and this is our contribution to show that we are ready to cooperate, but also to connect in different areas, especially when it comes to nature protection and of course creating an environment for sustainable development.Said Mulic. Synergy is so crucial in tourism and tourist destinations, and one should definitely look at the much bigger picture and network through the region. center_img Also, it is normal for certain foreign groups of guests to come to Zagreb, visit Karlovac, then NP Una, Sarajevo, Mostar, Belgrade, Novi Sad, Vukovar and then return to Zagreb. It is tourists from Scandinavia and Chinese tourists who have such similar tours where they visit three or four countries and all important tourist destinations in the area in a week. From Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Hungary. NP UNA This cooperation is significant because we finally see a positive example of synergy and the importance of connecting, and the connection of two tourist destinations from two neighboring countries, Croatia and Bosnia. The Una River originates in Croatia and is a natural border between BiH and Croatia. The desire of the Una National Park is to develop the Una Continental Riviera, which would extend along the entire course of the river, regardless of the state border. Praise once again to this excellent cooperation, and especially Aquatika – freshwater aquarium Karlovac, which are the leaders of the trend of connection and synergy in tourism.last_img read more
