More attached: Proposal for a Decree amending the Law on Islands Minister of Regional Development and European Union Funds Marko Pavić said that we currently have 4 households on the islands that are not connected to the water supply network. “This means that over ten thousand citizens on our islands do not have equal access to water as those on land,” the minister said, explaining: He reminded that at the end of the first phase of the fight against coronavirus, ie the relaxation of measures, it was indicated that a phase of coexistence with the virus would follow: “Most of the new cases were “imported” cases, mostly from BiH and Serbia, and cases of spreading the virus inside closed spaces. Therefore, decisions were made on the new regime at border crossings and the use of face masks in public transport.”, Pointed out Minister Božinović. Croatia is entering a phase of coexistence with the coronavirus The Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Croatia and Minister of the Interior Davor Božinović said that Croatia was entering a phase of coexistence with the coronavirus and an increase in the number of new cases could be expected, and their number would depend on compliance with CNIPH measures. He added that such an extremely favorable epidemiological situation in Croatia has enabled us to be among the first to open up to foreign tourists, especially since tourism is a vital branch of the Croatian economy. By amending the Law on Islands, equal access leads to fellow citizens on the islands center_img “This means that an increase in new cases is to be expected. However, this increase will in any case be smaller if we all adhere to the measures of the CNIPH. This is the best way to slow down the spread of the virus during the summer”, He said. “There are currently 246 thousand tourists in Croatia and their number is growing by 20 to 30 thousand per day”, Said the Minister of Tourism Gary Cappelli at today’s, 237th session of the Government, and added that it is a sign that Croatia is a” safe and recognizable “tourist country. “This proved to be correct and effective because from May 23 to June 16, we recorded only 25 new cases for a full 12 days. It was the second best result in all of Europe at the time. For comparison, in the same period Slovenia had 31, Slovakia 49, Malta 56, Greece 273, Hungary 398 cases, of the countries with a small number of new cases. In neighboring BiH and Austria, there were more than 700, in Bulgaria more than a thousand, in Serbia over 1400, and in Northern Macedonia almost 2400. Italy, Germany, Spain, Poland and France had between 8 and 13 people. It is important to understand the context”, The Prime Minister supported his claims with figures. “Therefore, the Law on Islands provides for a subsidized price of water, and by amending this regulation, we increase per capita consumption on the island from 45 cubic meters to 85 cubic meters per year, thus equalizing the right of our fellow citizens on the islands to access the price of water on land.” and we also provide enough water for all our islanders. ” Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli said that this Regulation is important because of the better living conditions on the islands, primarily for those who live on the islands, and thus for tourists. By the way, the islands account for about 25 percent of tourist arrivals. The Prime Minister Andrej Plenković pointed out that the government, after the virus appeared in February, thanks to timely measures and responsible behavior of all citizens, managed to curb the spread in March and April, and then rationally and given the numbers, began a gradual easing in three phases: April 27, May 4, and May 11.
