What is it like to set up a business and enter the property market in a country with an unspoiled natural environment, a celebrated cultural and historical heritage and so much emphasis as a tourism destination? Did recent political changes make any progress in implementing structural reforms and advancing Croatian investment climate?
We, at the VCCC, thought this topic worth investigating, so we invited Mr Alen Malenica, an expert in the field whose architectural portfolio speaks for itself to share his insights on Croatian’s legal framework and raising investment possibilities offered in this sector.
On Thursday, 25th February, on the picturesque Williamstown waterfront, at charming converted church ambient belonging to the Ragusa Restaurant, we welcomed Mr Malenica and his wife Tamara, who, on a voluntarily basis, flew in from Sydney to answer questions about high para-fiscal fees, rigid construction laws, and slow and complex permitting procedures.
Mr Malenica generously spoke for over an hour and a half offering support to investors in identifying and implementing new investment projects and starting up business in Croatia. He also provided advice, guidance and legal expertise for helping with strategies for investment promotion and removing barriers to investment
.An evening full of information essential to everyone considering investing in the Croatian property market came to an end over delicious Croatian style canapés and homemade Ragusa wine. Casual conversation and business cards were shared, the atmosphere refined and all present hopefully found the evening as enjoyable. Stay tuned for next VCCC event!
