It focuses on bringing Croats living in Croatia with those who have built their lives abroad in order to introduce them to each other and allow them do business together.
The 4th edition of Meeting G2 – A Look in the Future is set to offer new business opportunities in Croatia and will take place in the country’s capital, Zagreb from 12-14 November 2018.
Its main aim is to enhance the diaspora’s investment in the Adraitic country.
For the fourth time, the President of the Republic of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, has accepted to sponsor the MEETING G2 conference.
“This year, the team behind the event has announced a delicious panel discussion on wine and food from Croatian producers and other, less edible but equally interesting, panels about our beautiful wood industry, blockchain technologies and system integrators, health and beauty and, in the end, panel with Croatian artists”, reads vccc.asn.au.
The letter “G” and number “2” stand for the second generation of Croats (abroad). This edition, looks forward to see local economy revitalised and to create an opportunity for ” successful entrepreneurs” and “business people from abroad of Croatian descent and entrepreneurs or project starters from the homeland” all gather in one place, to meet, talk and make business deals.
This fresh idea became a promising meeting (now into its 4th edition as mentioned before) thanks to the Victorian Croatian Chamber of Commerce (VCCC), in Melbourne, Australia. The new initiative by members of Victoria’s Croatian community, is all about creating “an all inclusive forum designed to unlock the commercial potential of Croatian society, both local and oversea.”
As the VCCC website reads, the mission refers to the accomplishment of
- Nurturing greater commercial cooperation and networking between members of the Croatian-Australian business community
- Fostering the growth of economic relations between Croatia and Australia, particularly at this pivotal time follow ing Croatia’s entry into the European.
After registering impressive and rising numbers in the past two years, exports from Croatia to Australia have the potential to grow. Although, at present, “the lion’s share” as far as Croatian exports are concerned, belongs to spices, sauces, electric transformers and static inverters. Hopefully, the 200 participants expected to attend the 4th meeting in a month from now, in Zagreb, will be offered the chance to talk about different products, too.
Though created by Croats living in Australia, the Meeting G2 – A Look in the Future will also gather nearly 80 successful Croat business people “from numerous countries around the world”, Croatia Week says…. / IBNA
