Slovenia’s Economy Minister Zdravko Počivalšek and his Croatian counterpart, Gari Cappelli, will meet next week to discuss measures to support the tourism sector, the economy ministry told Slovenia’s official news agency STA.
Leading newspaper Delo said Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic had already consulted Slovenian PM Janez Janša about the possibility of opening borders to tourists during the summer.
This is not surprising, Delo said, given that the most numerous tourists in Croatia in recent years have been Germans, followed by Slovenian guests.
Meanwhile, the party of former PM Marjan Šarec (LMŠ) announced plans to request a vote of no-confidence for Počivalšek over his role in the purchase of protective personal equipment. The minister replied that it would be an opportunity to analyse the epidemic comprehensively and provide all the evidence. (Zoran Radosavljevic | EURACTIV.com)
