Razvitak i unapredenje Rijecke luke implementacijom aktivnosti i politika Europske unije

The Port of Rijeka is the largest and most important port of the Republic of Croatia and as a port of international public transport represents an international hub that connects directly the Croatian traffic and the economic system with the world transport and economic system. The Port of Rijeka has always boasted not only of extremely favourable geographical position, but also a rich tradition and experience so far. Taking into account these characteristics, the Port of Rijeka is certainly the key and strategic resource for the development of the entire traffic and economic system development. With accession of Croatia to the European Union (EU), the port of Rijeka has become an integral part of the European transport route. The EU policies are based on the partnership, rather than on a competitive relationship, to encourage closer cooperation with other ports of the EU located in the particular geographic area. Rijeka environment includes the ports of Trieste and Koper and the goal is long-term cooperation for mutual benefit. By investing in the infrastructure of the port of Rijeka system, the Croatian part of the European transport route will be included in the European transport network, which should give incentive to a significant recovery of the general condition of the entire Croatian economy and thus contribute to the successful overcoming of the current crisis.
