Seminar “Belgium, Your Business Destination in the Heart of Europe”
Split, April 4, 2019
The opening of the new Belgian Honorary Consulate in Split and the nomination of its holder, Mr. Goran Šarić, allowed the Zagreb Hub.brussels office to coordinate an Economic seminar on Belgium, with the Croatian Chamber of Economy/County Chamber of Split-Dalmatia.

After the institutional welcome words, the AEC of Zagreb introduced poetically the successive speakers:
09:40 Belgian carpets are not only red - Modulyss (Objektni tepisoni D.o.o.) – Mrs. Jelena Bakić.
10:00 From a skylight has a window on Southeast Europe – Deceuninck D.o.o. – Mrs. Renata Travljanin.
10:20 From Belgium to Croatia: tourist and commercial links - Salt Sand Stone – Mr. Philip Dupont and Mrs. Josipa Zekanović.
10.40 International services and activities of the CCE – CCE Zagreb/Service International relations – Mrs. Irena Spahić
11:00 Belgium, so far and yet so close – Hub.brussels Croatia - M. Antonio Garcia.
On October 14th 2014, the same seminar welcomed some 20 rather passive spectators.
In 2019, the number was slightly higher, but the difference was in the quality of the attending companies and organizations, the informal conversations followed by concrete requests in real time, the medium or long term "invest" perspectives and the testimonials of the good relations between Dalmatia and Belgium.
This was a source of high satisfaction for all Belgian (federal and regional) and Croatian officials.
