(ANSAmed) - ROME, APRIL 19 - Over 20 investment projects in the tourism, infrastructure and services sectors: Croatia is back in Italy with the project 'Be Croactive', launched in 2007 by the Croatian Chamber of Economy with the aim of promoting Croatian products and attracting investors to the country. In this way Croatia is fostering the involvement of foreign countries in the Expo Italian Real Estate, set to take place between June 5 and June 7 at the Fieramilano exhibition grounds.

Among the investment opportunities selected is the Paman Resort, a 700-million-euro project which concerns the island by the same name in front of the city of Zara for the creation of a luxury resort with integrated services for 5,000 beds; the modernisation and extension of the Rijeka city airport, which with 16 million euros in expenditure aims to improve services and facilities for passengers; and the shopping centre Colloseum City Park, in the city of Slavonski Brod (13 million euros).

Tourism is one of the country's most important sectors, and in 2011 it generated revenue of 6 billion euros (18% of GDP).
