As undoubtedly the largest, best organised and most dazzling regional event of this kind, the Croatia Boat Show is a remarkable stage of the local and international nautical industry, from yacht builders to engines and equipment producers, as well as companies offering various complementary goods and services to lovers of the sea and sailing.

Already a member of the International Federation of Boat Show Organisers, the 12th Croatia Boat Show will welcome even more proudly its exhibitors, sponsors and other partners after having been assigned a genuine confirmation on organizational skills - the Croatian Superbrand Certificate. This attribute is not only a proof of the Profectus company qualifications in this business, but also a genuine compliment to all exhibitors who have, through theirprofessional approach, contributed to the growth and development of the show in its every aspect.

A marvellous scene - hundreds of boats and yachts moored just in front of the ancient Diocletian’s palace - has found its way into international media, promoting our country as a unique destination for nautical tourists. Natural beauties and cultural heritage of our coast and islands are just additional reasons to come to Split in thespringtime and to join those who visit Split and Dalmatia intentionally in the Croatia Boat Show period.

In Croatia there is a "significant gap" between the political elite, which is "resolutely turned towards EU integration", and public opinion, which is "still lukewarm on the issue," according to Jacques Rupnik, a researcher at Sciences Po in Paris. The Balkan specialist spoke to EurActiv France in an interview.

Croatia's new President Ivo Josipovic "can promote the opening of the population's minds" to EU accession, he said, adding that "his words and his status" will give him the authority to do so.

Opposition Social Democrat Josipovic won the presidential election on 10 January, promising to help the government’s efforts to complete European Union membership talks and join the bloc in 2012 (EurActiv 11/01/10).

Croatia is poised to become the first country to join the EU since the accession of Romania and Bulgaria in 2007. The country is expected to complete its accession negotiations in 2010 and join in 2012 (see EurActiv LinksDossier).

"The fact that Ivo Josipovic puts Europe at the heart of his speeches is very important," Rupnik said.

Even though the president's political role has become "highly symbolic" since the 1990s as the regime became more parliamentarian, the new president has "also certain powers in terms of foreign policy," he said.

"On all matters concerning Europe, [Josipovic's] predecessor, Stjepan Mesic, clearly broke with his country's strategy from the 90s," Rupnik said. "He promoted cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, but also defined the attitude of Croatia towards Bosnia, which means that he chose not to play the separatist card any more," he added. "Finally, he encouraged the return of the Serb minority expelled in 1995," the analyst noted.

"The new president intends to follow on the same path," he said. But "the context in Croatia has changed in the meantime: people no longer wonder whether EU membership would be a good thing or a threat to newly-acquired sovereignty". The issue now is to know "when to join and how to ensure that the internal dynamics will continue".

Regarding the Kosovo problem, Rupnik insisted that "European pedagogy consists of reconciliation". Indeed, Western Balkan countries have not yet found a modus vivendi on how to deal with Kosovo and its hybrid status (EurActiv 20/01/10).

As Josipovic sees it, "going to international courts can bring satisfaction to the victims. However politically this approach doesn't help regional reconciliation or the objective of EU integration," Rupnik stressed.

"2012 seems a quite realistic deadline" for Croatia's EU accession, he said. "Even if the country is ready in 2011, 2012 appears as a more reasonable deadline because of the greater emphasis on member states not to repeat the alleged error of 2007," Rupnik insisted, claiming Bulgaria and Romania's accession was "a bit hasty".

Nevertheless, "we should not push the deadline too far, because Croatia is the most positive signal that the EU could send to the Western Balkans," Rupnik concluded.

  • On 5 December 2008, the Act on Amendments to the Act on Ownership and Other Real Rights was adopted, which has equalized citizens and legal persons from EU Member States with domestic persons by removing from the current Act special assumptions (reciprocity and consent of the Minister of Justice) for acquiring the right to real property ownership in the Republic of Croatia (article 60/2 SAA).
    Therefore, when the Amendments to the Act enter into force on 1 February 2009, the citizens of the European Union Member States will acquire the right to real property ownership in the Republic of Croatia under the same condition as domestic persons.

  • (Concerning persons who are not citizens of EU Member States, but who plan on acquiring real property in RC, reciprocity and consent of the Minister remain as assumptions which must be fulfilled in order for a person to acquire real property)

  • Procedures which have been motioned  by citizens of EU Member State for acquiring real property ownership in the RC, but have not been completed by a final decision before the Act on Amendments to the Act on Ownership and Other Real Rights has entered into force, will be discontinued by official duty.

  • Legal transaction which was concluded before the Act on Amendments to the Act on Ownership and Other Real Rights has entered into force, has the aim of acquiring the right of real property ownership in the Republic of Croatia which a citizen or legal person from the EU Member States has concluded as the acquisitor, is considered valid if the general assumptions have been fulfilled for the validity of that legal transaction and if the legal transaction is completed (convalidation – retroactive enforcement of the Act on Amendments).
