Kristjan Staničić, CNTB: In the coming period, the focus will be on the domestic market and destinations easily accessible by road

first_imgAccording to the eVisitor system, in the commercial and non-commercial segment and nautical charter, in Croatia during the first three months 635.000 arrivals (-33%) and 1.893.500 overnight stays (-20%) were realized, while in March realized 118.236 arrivals (-75%) and 518.530 overnight stays (-53%). Also, Staničić stated that in the coming period, when adequate conditions are met, intensive work will be done on the promotion and positioning of Croatia as a safe country with a focus on the domestic market and those markets where Croatian destinations are easily accessible by road. The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on global tourism trends is extremely negative and, as expected, is visible in the tourism results achieved in March in Croatia, he said. HTZ Director Kristjan Stanicic and added that there is almost no tourist traffic. “At this moment, we have primarily focused our activities on the changes to the Annual Work Program and Financial Plan for 2020. We also maintain daily communication with all our representative offices in the world, strategic partners and international tourism associations, as well as representatives of the tourism sector in Croatia. We primarily maintain our presence in key emitting markets through activities on social networks, where we have enabled numerous followers to make virtual trips through Croatian destinations, expressing support and empathy given the current situation in other countries. It is still too early to talk about concrete forecasts for the main part of the tourist year, ie for July, August and September. “, he pointed out Stanicic.

Initiative “Let’s plow Croatian fields!” Launched

first_imgAs more than half of food products in Croatia come from imports, and the crisis caused by the coronavirus is just heating up, the Oikon Institute for Applied Ecology decided to use their knowledge and capacity to help start Croatian agriculture. Namely, the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic forced a large number of countries to take measures to limit the export of their agricultural products. “With the desire to help, we decided to harness our knowledge and capacities and do what we can and what we know. We gathered several of our excellent experts with extensive experience in the field of agronomy, ecology, forestry and geoinformatics and together launched an initiative called “Let’s plow Croatian fields!”, Because Croatia has great potential, we just need to know and be able to use them., said Oikon director Dalibor Hatić. “If we estimate that one square meter of arable land per capita is needed per day, ie that one hectare can feed 27 people throughout the year, according to our preliminary calculations, this area of ​​over 400.000 ha could potentially feed almost 11 million people a year!” This figure is of course significantly lower because we must take into account that part of the land in this map without investment is not suitable for conventional intensive agricultural production, but this data is a very good indicator that Croatia has the ability and potential to feed not only its citizens but produce food and raw materials for export ”, explains doc. dr. sc. Hrvoje Kutnjak from the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Zagreb. Croatia, as they point out from Oikon, imports more than 50% necessary food products, so this is becoming a burning issue in light of expected problems in the coming economic crisis such as disruptions in distribution chains, inability to collect and process agricultural products due to social distance, problems expected in product storage, etc. “All the land that can be used for agricultural purposes is unused, and it is overgrown or not used. There is also mined land in these preliminary mapped areas, but for safety reasons we will remove all suspicious minefields from the new detailed and precise map we are already working on in a hurry and we expect that it will be completed in ten days ”., announced Dr. sc. Vladimir Kušan, Member of the Management Board of Oikon. Oikon makes its maps and all its further analyzes available to everyone in the Republic of Croatia who can benefit from them. The results of their analysis upon written request and free of charge will be submitted in the format of an active spatial database to local governments, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Agency for Payments in Agriculture and other actors that are key in creating and implementing agricultural policies. Oikon made a preliminary spatial analysis of the potential of agricultural land in the Republic of Croatia and identified over 400.000 ha of unused agricultural land, which could be cultivated or used for food production in a relatively short time.

Letters to the Editor for Wednesday, Feb. 6

first_imgI’ve had it and I’m going to be taking pictures of you, and the Niskayuna Police Department will be contacting you. It might not be a big deal to you, but the safety of my child, and every child on that street, is a big deal to me and parents just like me. To those of you who do stop (even at yellow lights), thank you. Your consideration is noticed and appreciated. To those of you who don’t stop, smile for the camera.Ellen RussoNiskayuna Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRemember to stop for stopped busesDear Morning Commuters (specifically those who travel on Hillside Avenue): I don’t know if you’re aware of this or not, but when you see a school bus with its lights on (yes, even the yellow ones) stop.Don’t try to attempt to shave 30 seconds off your commute by squeaking past it. Why, you ask? Because passing a school bus with its lights on and signs out is against the law.Several times a week, I watch ignorant motorists in their own little world blatantly blow past my daughter’s stopped, or almost completely stopped, bus in an effort to get to the corner and turn because they’re running late. More from The Daily Gazette:Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuscenter_img Grateful for support rescuing feral catsI’m a resident of Glenville and I recently stumbled upon a feral cat colony near where I live. There were approximately 50 cats and kittens living outdoors in the cold, rain and snow with no shelter. Being an animal lover, I couldn’t just walk past and not do anything. I knew that Steve Caporizzo was affiliated with Pet Connection, so I started there first.He put my plea for help on his website and I immediately received many recommendations as to who could help me. The majority of the rescue groups and all the volunteers were tied up with other feral colonies and rescues. Nonetheless, they were willing to help. I would like to say thank you to The Kitten Angels, SCRUFF, Guilderhaven and Steve Caporizzo for all their help. These groups work endless hours and are totally devoted to the safety and well-being of animals. Through this process, I have met many people and learned many things. I can’t stress enough the need to support local rescue groups and if possible, volunteer. They’re always looking for more people to help with the rescue of animals in need. There are a lot of wonderful caring human beings out there. Thank you so much.Caryn WeaverGlenville  last_img read more
