Conference Center titled "Investment in Croatia: Prospects for
Growth." The purpose of this event is to inform the audience

opportunities for concrete business cooperation.
Included in the panel discussion will be presentations by
officials from both Croatian and U.S. government, investment
overviews from experienced entrepreneurs and a discussion
session, which will give audience the opportunity to ask
questions. The panelists will include: Dr. Ante Babic, State
