The first meeting of the Working Group for the drafting of the Law on Tourist Boards, Tourist Tax and Membership Fees was held

first_imgA major reform of tourist boards in Croatia is underway, as well as the way the CNTB works, which has been announced several times, and the first meeting of the Working Group for drafting the Law on Tourist Boards and Promoting Croatian Tourism, the Law on Residence Tax and Amendments to the Law has been held. on membership fees in tourist boards was held at the Ministry of Tourism on October 17, where Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli participated as coordinator.Minister of Tourism Gary Cappell-i announced that tourist boards must deal more effectively with the promotion and management of destinations, and that is why preparations are underway to amend the Law on Tourist Boards, which is planned to be completed by the end of the year. “The direction of drafting this law is in the direction of remaining county tourist boards, but that they must strengthen their knowledge in promotion, branding, marketing and PR. We also want to reform the Main Office of the Croatian National Tourist Board, from which we expect greater engagement in the promotion of the country in certain markets, but with full control over the efficiency of every kuna spent in the process. Given the rapidly changing trends of supply and demand, access to markets and the concept of promotion, it is necessary to be more up-to-date and faster to adapt to new challenges. Our goal is to reform the entire system of tourist boards and representative offices in the world in a way that they are more efficient, proactive and ultimately more competitive, which is a prerequisite for the continued growth of Croatian tourism. ” Cappelli points out and concludes that we need stronger promotion of special products, but also much better promotion of the continent.The working group for drafting laws in tourism consists of members and stakeholders from different segments of the tourism system in Croatia.You can see the list of members below:Ivan Arambašić (Davorin Purgarić, replacement member), Croatian National Tourist BoardMartina Bienenfeld (Luka Benko, replacement member), Zagreb Tourist BoardVladimir Bakić, Dubrovnik-Neretva County Tourist Board (Joško Stella, Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, replacement member)Denis Ivošević (Ana Pibernik, replacement member), Istria County Tourist BoardRujana Bušić Srpak, Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board (Antonio Sobol, Osijek-Baranja County Tourist Board, replacement member)Rudi Grula, Međimurje County Tourist Board (Ksenija Tomić, Krapina-Zagorje County Tourist Board, replacement member)Krunoslav Kapetanović (Šime Klarić, replacement member), National Association of Family and Small HotelsNada Prodan Mraković (Marlena Floigl, replacement member), Croatian Association of CountiesToni Mateša (Helena Mesarić, replacement member), Association of CitiesMartin Baričević (Franjo Bukal, replacement member), Association of MunicipalitiesRonald Korotaj (Iva Bahunek, replacement member), Croatian Hotel Employers AssociationTomislav Fain (Ivana Maltar, replacement member), Association of Croatian Travel AgenciesTihomir Nikolaš (Adriano Palman, replacement member), Croatian Camping AssociationNenad Šepak (Krešimir Tomić, replacement member), Croatian Chamber of CraftsTomislav Popović (Željko Kukurin, replacement member), Croatian Employers’ AssociationAntonia Urlić (Nenad Nizić, replacement member), Croatian Chamber of CommerceDanijela Čavlović (Lana Petrović, replacement member), Croatian Chamber of Commerce-Family Accommodation AssociationDragan Magaš, Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality – OpatijaIvan Herak, Faculty of Economics – OsijekKatarina Miličević, Institute of TourismSinisa Topalovic, Horwath HTLĐurđica Šimičić, Jadranka ddSnježana Brzica, Assistant Minister, Ministry of TourismTonči Glavina, State Secretary, Ministry of TourismGari Cappelli, Minister of Tourism, Coordinator of the Working Group.In accordance with the Tourism Development Strategy until 2020, the Implementation of the Tourism Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia until 2020 presupposes an efficient system of destination management at the local and regional level and coordination of national tourism policy with the development of destination products. Ensuring that the tourist system takes on the role of destination management, it is necessary to redefine the tasks and responsibilities of regional and local tourist boards, while respecting the principle of financial 82 self-sufficiency.The rationalization of the system implies the application of the principles of spatial-functional and production integrity, whereby the tourist communities will gradually take over the function of complete destination management organizations (DMO). This includes their appropriate staffing and education and training for destination development management, which especially refers to the tasks of strengthening the competitiveness of the destination and the ability to coordinate and harmonize the often conflicting interests of stakeholders in the destination.Attachment: Tourism Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia until 2020last_img read more

High on life on the hill

first_imgFor many parents of school aged children, and even those with children yet to come, it’s the fact that it’s in the school catchment zones of West End Primary and Brisbane State High schools. 4 bed 3 bath 3 car pool It took more than three years and a trip to the land court for Mr Lynch to get Council approval.“By the time you get to the back of the house it’s at least three storeys high and you talking about the days when they had a 7.5m (limit) and I was trying for a 11.5m high house print,” he said.“It’s on a 900sq m (876sq m) lot…but it’s only 10m wide, so when you’re trying to deal with Council on a 10m wide site, they treat you as if you’re on a small lot.”He said his brief, was like any city house brief – “full of contradictions”.“You’re trying to get light into your house, but you’re trying not see your neighbours,” he said.“You’re trying to get privacy, but as well as that you’re trying to get views.“It’s a 365sq m house internally, that’s without the garage, so you’re trying to get a large house on a small block, even that’s a contradiction isn’t it?”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours ago Owner Paul Lynch said while it might be a “happy accident” the suburb has turned out this way – you couldn’t argue that it was well connected – with taxis, buses, trains, scooters, ubers and even ferries.“My wife started scootering to work, and she’s worked out she can get to the CBD in 12 minutes on a Lime Scooter,” Mr Lynch said.A commercial architect by trade, this was the first house that he designed.“A lot of the finishes are commercial finishes, so they actually don’t date,” he said.“It’s got acoustic ceilings like you find in a hospital and it stops the echo when you’re having dinner parties.” Now that his boys were teenagers, it was time to opt for a low maintenance lifestyle.“The kids don’t use the backyard anymore,” he said.“It’s this little oasis in the middle of the city and it’s quite lovely, but… if the teenage boys aren’t kicking a soccer ball around in it, then there’s no point having it.” He said you needed a three-storey house in the city if you want to have some green space.“I think you need to always steal views, and I think this (house) does a good job of stealing views,” he said.“What you’re trying to do is use your backyard and your neighbour’s backyard as your view…that’s really important.”So important, that it was Mr Lynch’s most prized part of the home. “My favourite thing about the home is actually the view out the back,” he said.“I adore the fact that you can have a city house, with basically a bushland view, with possums and lorikeets and you can’t hear the city, you can’t hear the traffic.“There’ almost not a room in the house a city view or a bushland and suburban view.” PRICE ON APPLICATION Having fallen in love with the locale over the past 20 years, Mr Lynch said they would downsize to a four-bedroom apartment down the road. The opportunity exists to purchase this home on its own 438sq m block with the option to also buy the joining vacant land to make it 876sq m. For those with tertiary aged offspring, it’s just a ferry stop away from the University of Queensland.For the social butterflies, it’s within walking distance of West End’s Boundary St, South Bank and even Brisbane City. House of the Week: 155 Dornoch Tce, Highgate Hill.Location, location, location! It’s a catch phrase we’ve all heard too many times before – but it is the highlight of this beautiful home. That is a big call as the home in itself is a showstopper. AGENT/ Deb Maguire, 0427 246 279, Place Kangaroo Pointlast_img read more
