By introducing traditional Chinese medicine in Istria, they want to attract more tourists from China?

first_imgIn Pula, the County Prefect of Istria, Valter Flego, received the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to the Republic of Croatia, HE Mr. Hu Zhaoming and associates, for whom this is the second visit to Istria, point out from the Istrian County.The prefect introduced the economic and tourist results of the Istrian County as well as the very low employment: “Although we are a small region, with a small population compared to China, there are currently 1,5 million tourists in Istria, and this tourist year is going in a very good direction. ” Flego pointed out and thanked for the long-term cooperation with the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China, as well as the international cooperation with the Chinese provinces and the city of Ningbo, which he visited two years ago with the Istrian delegation.The key topic of the meeting was the possibility and further development of economic cooperation, especially in the field of mutual import and export of products, which had already begun earlier. The Chinese Ambassador emphasized that the Chinese have become large global consumers of quality products, so there is great interest in importing Istrian wines, olive oil and other premium products from Istria.Talking about the tourism aspect of the cooperation, emphasis was placed on the fact that Chinese tourists are coming to Croatia more and more, and how to further increase their arrival was discussed. Namely, last year 100 thousand Chinese guests were recorded, and in the first part of this year this number increased by 16%, while the number of 150 thousand visitors from China is expected by the end of the year.The participants especially commented on the great potential in the development of cooperation in the field of health tourism, medical tourism, in terms of offering services and practicing traditional Chinese medicine in Istria, which the participants agreed would further contribute to attracting Chinese tourists. The Istrian prefect suggested that the Embassy send an official Letter of Intent to the Istrian County as soon as possible in order to start examining the possibility of such cooperation.Whether they can intensify in Istria before and after the season, targeting a large Chinese market of 1,3 billion inhabitants, remains to be seen, but certainly one of the preconditions is to introduce direct flights to China as soon as possible to increase the arrival of Chinese tourists in Croatia.Perhaps the announcement of the arrival of a low-budget airline in Croatia next year may be on that trail Thai Air Asia X from Thailand, which currently connects 23 destinations across Asia (Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, Seoul, Busan, Taipei, Xian, Beijing, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Shanghai, Chongqing, New Delhi and Kathmandu), Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Gold) Coast), Auckland, the Middle East (Jeddah, Tehran and Muscat) and Africa (Mauritius).last_img read more

Howe school needs its own parking lot

first_imgGarner and Baker avenues, near the Plum Street intersection, have cars parked in front of our houses all day long.Wintertime creates an even bigger problem, with snowbanks making parking on the street more difficult.  There’s a fire hydrant in front of my house. Just about daily, I’m telling someone not to park there; it’s illegal.Some people argue. Most move. One man told me he had to park there because he had to talk on his phone. I do believe parking in front of hydrants is something that only emergency vehicles are permitted to do.  The school should provide adequate parking for all it employees. We want our streets back.Winifred BalzSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to online Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRegarding the Howe Magnet Elementary School parking issue: What were they thinking?  Last year, the school was shut down for major renovations.The one thing they didn’t do was to make a bigger parking lot for their staff and support personnel. So the staff (and support staff) park all over our neighborhood. They park on Plum Street — so it’s not a two-way street most of the day, as it becomes too narrow for cars to pass.  last_img read more
