Shimon Peres In Croatia: "You can do it yourself, you do not need the government or their company. You can create your own company, but you need the courage to start on a new path, discover something hidden, and for that you need to learn, have curiosity, imagination and a vision. That is more important than anything else"
The vice president of the Israeli government, Shimon Peres ended his stay in Croatia with a visit to Split and a lecture on globalization. The vice president of the Israeli government, and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Shimon Peres, ended his two day visit to Croatia, on Friday, with a visit to Split and a lecture "Globalization serving peace in the Middle East". He also visited students of the University of Split, members of the academic community, and political and religious leaders in Vila Dalmatia. Peres spoke to a large gathering of people about globalization and the Israeli experiences in Creating a modern country. He directly advised the students: "You can do it yourself, you do not need the government or their company. You can create your own company, but you need the courage to start on a new path, discover something hidden, and for that you need to learn, have curiosity, imagination and a vision. That is more important than anything else". Believe in yourself, because if Israel, which is a little bit larger than Croatia can make this much progress, then Croatian citizens must believe in themselves and in youth, who they must give the right to choose and to start working, said the Israeli leader, in Split. Shimon Peres came to Split on the invitation of the minister of science, education and sport, Dragan Primorac, who stated that one of the main messages of this event is that Split is visited by Nobel Prize winners, world politicians and leaders. He added that the message which Peres gave during his stay in Croatia, and in Split today, give hope and faith for the bright future of Croatia, because if a great leader of world politics said that, then it really should be believed. The lecture was, among others, attended by the arch bishop of the Split-Makarska county, Marin Barisic. On Thursday, on the first day of his visit to Croatia, in Zagreb, he met with premier Ivo Sanader, president Stjepan Mesic, and the mayor of Zagreb, Milan Bandic.
