ZAGREB, 2 Sept 2021 - Two agreements, worth a total of HRK 55.5 million, were signed in Rab on Thursday to upgrade port infrastructure in this town on the northern Adriatic island of the same name and in the nearby mainland town of Senj.

The first agreement concerns the award of a grant for the reconstruction of the wharf in Rab, while the second one relates to the construction of a new ramp in Senj's Stinica ferry port.

The signing ceremony was attended by Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković, Minister of Regional Development and EU Funds Nataša Tramišak, and local government officials.

The Stinica project is very important for providing a transport connection to Rab, as well as between Lika-Senj and Primorje-Gorski Kotar Counties, Tramišak said.

The investment in Rab is part of a large investment project by the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure through which nearly HRK 2 billion has so far been invested in small coastal and island ports. 85% of funding for all the projects comes from the EU's Cohesion Fund and the rest from the Ministry's budget.
