Croatian National Tourist Board to open office in Tokyo

ZAGREB, 14.7.2007.

The Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) had decided to open an office in Tokyo, given the assessments of the World Tourism Organization (UNVWTO), according to which the Japanese market and the markets of the Far East have best possibilities for tourism businesses, and given that each year more and more Japanese tourist are vacationing in Croatia.

Japanese tourists are known as good spenders, notably when it comes to cultural and ecological tourism.

The HTZ had translated into Japanese the latest edition of its brochure "Croatia - The Homeland of Marco Polo".

Apart from the Japanese market, the Tokyo office would also cover other markets in the Far East, such as China and India. (Hina)
