I am excited to inaugurate Croatian Institute for Security and Prosperity that will be dedicated to help shape the next chapter for Croatia and its citizens.
Croatia has come a long way over the past 25 years and the Croatian people are the main heroes of this story – making hard sacrifices, adapting to a new world, and committing to a constructive path for the future. Yet the future is everything and it is my hope that we must now be relentlessly focused on building a stronger, more prosperous nation where every citizen flourishes over the next 25 years.
It is my desire to bring together the best minds in Croatia and the world to tackle complex issues and propose real solutions of critical importance to Croatia’s future.
The Croatian Institute will help develop a blueprint for the future that is comprehensive and integrated. All issues that are essential to a strong democracy, strong security, and a strong economy will be on the table.
We aim to be a convener of people and ideas, to share successes elsewhere that may be applied here in Croatia to improve life today and for future generations. We will be focused on finding policy solutions that improve the lives of every single citizen, whether they live in the city or work the land. Young or old, we aim to develop policies that create more opportunities for all Croatians.
I envision the Croatian Institute to be a lasting initiative that benefits citizens from all sectors and walks of life. We seek to leave partisanship at the door and come together around the table of ideas to forge a better future for every Croatian. I hope you will join us in this endeavor.
