Croatia is a nautical superpower and we are one of the most important nautical destinations on a global level

first_imgThis year, about 400 exhibitors are exhibiting at the Biograd Boat Show, who will present themselves with numerous vessels and nautical equipment, and European and world premieres of new vessels will be held, which will be in the focus of interest of the world media. As part of the first Croatia Charter Expo, a new two-day Business to Business event, charter companies will meet with agents, brokers and suppliers. Kovačević emphasized that these data clearly outline the potential and importance of the development of nautical tourism for the overall development of the Croatian tourist product. “That is why we must protect our coast and sea, but also remove obstacles, especially legal ones, for stronger investment and competitiveness of the nautical sector. The key is in the urgent procedure of adopting the Amendment to the Law on Maritime Property and Seaports, in order to create legal security, which is a precondition for new investments and development.”, Said Kovacevic.  Attachment: ISTRAŽIVANJE – TOMAS NAUTIKA JAHTING 2017. “Hrvatska je nautička velesila i jedna smo od najznačajnijih nautičkih destinacija ne samo na Mediteranu već i na globalnoj razini. To jasno potvrđuju i brojke – imamo flotu od 4.300  plovila, više od 140 luka nautičkog turizma s preko 17.000 vezova i milijun putnika na kruzerima. Prosjek potrošnje nautičkih turista je 126 eura dnevno, a u čarteru 183 eura po danu. Više od 30 posto tog novca se troši na druge oblike turizma, od kulturnog do vinske i gastronomske ponude“, pointed out the vice president of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Dragan Kovacevic at the opening of the Biograd Boat Show and the third Nautical Days of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. In the coming period, everyone in tourism will have to invest significantly more effort than in previous years in attracting guests, including charter, which has had a significant increase in capacity relative to demand growth. Therefore, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce organized a panel as part of the Nautical Day program “Is Croatia still the leading charter destination in the world?”, in which the Assistant Minister in the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure participated Andjelko Petrinic, State Secretary at the Ministry of Tourism Tonči Glavina, Head of the CNTB Market Research and Strategic Planning Department Sasa Popovac, President of the Association of Accommodation Providers on Boats – charter HGK Paško Klisović, Director of Sales and Marketing of one of the world’s leading boat rental platforms, MMK Systems Martina Hršak and editor-in-chief of Magazine More Braslav Karlić.  Glavina said that charter is a particularly important segment of our overall tourist offer because we hold almost 40 percent of the world’s charter fleet. “With the continuous growth of income, there is a growing interest of investors for the Croatian coast, including the construction of new marinas and the expansion of the nautical offer. Our goal and common task is to continuously raise standards in the quality of content and service. We also focus on sustainable development in order to be not only an even more competitive tourist destination in the future, but also to preserve our natural heritage, “said Glavina.  Organizer and host of the Biograd Boat Show and President of the Management Board of Ilirija Goran Raznjevic stated that the company is a pioneer of nautical tourism in Croatia. “Our further contribution to the development of nautical tourism is reflected in the organization of the fair, which in these twenty years with its continuous growth and development has grown into the days of Croatian nautical and congress of the nautical industry, which significantly contributed to the Croatian Chamber of Commerce”, Said Raznjevic.  At the first fair in 1999, only 5 exhibitors exhibited, and today it has grown into one of the leading nautical fairs in Europe. This is the 21st Biograd Boat Show, which takes place from October 17 to 19 in Biograd na Moru. As part of the event, sessions of professional associations of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce will be held: tourist shipping companies, small shipbuilding, marinas, ports, charters and adventure tourism, as well as numerous professional presentations. By the way, Zadar County is an important Croatian nautical center, which is confirmed by the awards of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce and the Croatian Tourist Board at this year’s Days of Croatian Tourism, where Zadar was named the best nautical destination and Olive Island Sutomišćica the best marina in Croatia. Also, Sukosan’s D-Marin Dalmacija was named the best in the category of large marinas, while Ilirija’s marina Kornati, where the fair takes place, was a finalist of the same category, and charter company Angelina from Biograd was a finalist for the charter company of the year. Klisovic cited significant fleet growth as the most significant challenges at the moment, with an increase in operating costs, mainly through an increase in the cost of connections. “There are measures and tools to achieve and maintain moderate growth through licensing of charter companies or at least the implementation of the existing regulations on charter operations, planning and construction of new berths and a stronger presence in insufficiently processed emitting markets. The intention is to open these topics through professional events on the BBS, agree on key problems and possible solutions, and launch the system in that direction, “Klisović explained.  State Secretary in the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Josip Bilaver said that nautical tourism stimulates the economic growth of the Zadar region, but also the entire country. “In addition to the already known tourist benefits of this type of tourism, it should be noted that the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure takes care of the development of nautical tourism ports, as well as the protection and preservation of the marine environment. Preservation of the sea and marine resources, safety of navigation and protection of human lives are the backbone of our work. Due to all the above, we are recognized as an excellent and safe nautical destination. “said Bilaver. As the manufacturer of the largest yacht charter booking system in the world, MMK Systems has data on 620 fleets and 8.500 vessels from all over the world that use this booking system. Hršak points out that these data clearly show the dominance of Croatia as the top destination for yacht charter in the world. “S obzirom da mi u MMK-u imamo flote iz  preko 35 država, primjećujemo da je, što se tiče razvijenosti industrije i uređenosti samog poslovanja, Hrvatska tu također lider s obzirom na jasna pravila oko boravišnih pristojbi, fiskalizacije, crew lista i sl., što u ostalim destinacijama često nije slučajShe asserted. last_img

Youngsters urged to be safe over graduation weekends

first_img Facebook Pinterest Twitter Facebook Pinterest Local NewsCrime WhatsApp Bryn Dodd shared her first-hand experience of the effects of drinking and driving with members of the media on Friday morning at the Odessa Police Department.Dodd’s message is aimed at recent high school graduates as part of Odessa Crime Stoppers’ Project Graduation that is scheduled to take place over the next two weekends.On Sept. 19, 2020, Dodd’s 18-year-old son, Evan Hill, was killed in a drunken driving collision. Hill was one of three teenagers that died in the two-vehicle collision. Hill was a back seat passenger.“His absence has left a hole in my heart and the hearts of all those who loved him,” Dodd said during the press conference. “… Because of alcohol my life is divided into two parts, before Evan died and after Evan died. Because of alcohol three teens died and two teens were seriously injured and now live with survivor’s guilt. Because of alcohol three families are broken and lost and trying to adapt in a world without these teens. Because of alcohol, a young man faces criminal charges along with mourning the loss of his best friend.“I’m standing here today to beg you to not drink and drive. If you are 21 and older, don’t buy alcohol for minors or host parties to serve alcohol to minors. One decision, one moment could change everything. Tomorrow isn’t promised or guaranteed.”Odessa Crime Stoppers is teaming up with local law enforcement agencies for Project Graduation, which is a two-weekend operation that is aimed at underage drinking, parties and drug use. The operation will take place Saturday (today for print), May 28 and May 29.Law enforcement agencies involved in the operation are Odessa Police Department, ECISD Police, ECHD Police, UTPB Police, Ector County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety.DPS spokesperson Sgt. Oscar Villarreal said on Friday morning that graduation is supposed to be the beginning of a graduates’ adult life, not the final chapter.“You are just starting your adult life,” Villarreal said of recent high school graduates. “All you’ve done is take the baby steps. Now life starts and welcome to the world.“You have military service, college, technical school or whatever your career path is. This is only the beginning.”Susan Rogers, spokesperson for Odessa Crime Stoppers, said during Friday’s press conference anyone with information that leads to at least one arrest or citation there will be a $200 reward. Rogers explained that the reward could increase depending on the size of the party or what is going on at the party.Odessa Police Department Chief Michael Gerke said graduation is a major milestone in a person’s life and not to ruin that with one bad decision. He also urged parents to not host parties where there will be underage drinking.“There are tons and tons of citations, arrests or charges that can be filed and we will file them,” Gerke said. “It’s the Odessa Police Department. It’s our local partners. It’s our state partners. We are all going to be out there.”Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis said it’s not cool to buy a young person alcohol.Dodd said there are parents that believe if a party happens under their watch that they are in control of the situation, but she explained that control is gone when one child leaves without their knowledge and something bad happens.“It’s still very dangerous,” Dodd said. “Please don’t do it.” WhatsApp Twitter Youngsters urged to be safe over graduation weekends Previous articleJordan top team in Battle of the BluebonnetsNext articleDAILY OIL PRICE: May 21, 2021 Royal McGregor By Royal McGregor – May 21, 2021 last_img

Suntrust Settles HAMP Investigation

first_img  Print This Post in Featured, Government, Headlines, News Derek Templeton is an attorney based in Dallas, Texas. He practices in the areas of real estate, financial services, and general corporate transactional law. His experience includes time as an Attorney Adviser for the U.S. Small Business Administration and as General Counsel for a nonprofit organization in Dallas. A self-avowed “policy junkie,” he has a keen interest in the effect that evolving federal policy has on the mortgage, default servicing, and greater housing industries. The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago July 3, 2014 830 Views In a filing with the SEC, Suntrust Banks, Inc. announced Thursday afternoon that it would pay up to $320 million to halt a criminal investigation into whether it had dealt inappropriately with homeowners who were looking to take advantage of the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).Several government agencies had been investigating SunTrust in connection with complaints that it misled homeowners who sought mortgage relief from SunTrust through HAMP and failed to timely process HAMP applications.”Resolving this legacy matter enhances our ability to focus on the future and support the continued housing recovery,” said Jerome Lienhard, SunTrust Mortgage, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer.  “We recognize that there were deficiencies in our administration of HAMP during the recession, and through the improvements we have made to our internal processes and this restitution plan, we are demonstrating our commitment to meet the high standards that we set for ourselves and that our customers expect.”Under the terms of the agreement, Suntrust agreed to pay a minimum of $179 million in consumer remediation, a number that could inflate to $274 million as necessary. Additionally, the company will pay $20 million to fund housing counseling, $10 million in remediation to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and 16 million to the Treasury Department.The agreement marks another enforcement victory for the government as they continue to resolve complaints related to the company’s dealings. Last month the Bank agreed to pay nearly one billion dollars to resolve complaints about actions that the government termed “systemic mortgage servicing misconduct,” including failing to promptly and accurately apply borrower payments, robo-signing, and other illegal foreclosure practice.Michael P. Stephens, Acting Inspector General of the Federal Housing Finance Agency Office of Inspector General reaffirmed the federal government’s commitment to consumer protection.“Today’s agreement with SunTrust underlines the importance of holding accountable those individuals and companies who pledge to ensure that homeowners are protected at all times; especially during times when the homeowner is seeking to save their home through a loan modification”,  said Stephens in a statement. “SunTrust has conceded that their HAMP program had numerous deficiencies and has harmed a significant amount of homeowners.  This behavior will not be tolerated.  We are proud to have worked with our law enforcement partners on this case.”In addition to the monetary penalty, SunTrust has agreed to increase its loss mitigation staff, monitor their mortgage modification process, and provide semi-annual reports regarding compliance with the agreement.
