A new tourist video of Karlovac County presented

first_imgNatural beauties, cultural and historical heritage and various riches that abound in the county located in the heart of Croatia are the key motives of the new tourist video of Karlovac County. The video “In the heart of Croatia” was premiered in the historic ambience of the Old Town of Dubovac, and the staff evokes everything that the county abounds in. The new tourist video of Karlovac County aims to attract new tourists and popularize the Karlovac area as one of the unavoidable places in Croatia. Karlovac County is full of natural beauties and various facilities, which allow every visitor, regardless of the season, to find ideal activities for themselves. The new tourist video perfectly summed up everything that Karlovac County has to offer. It is interesting and unusual that the tourist video was jointly directed by Karlovac County Prefect Damir Jelić and Srećko Radeljić, while the music was provided by the famous Croatian musician and composer Rajko Dujmić. In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ””Success cannot be lacking in any business that is done with emotions. That’s why it was wonderful to work with people like Rajko, because he does it with emotion and experience. This video is not purposeful, but a real artistic expression. It will produce several short videos, which will show specific segments – cycling, gastronomy, river rafting, historical fortifications. Only then will the video have its true meaning and in the right way spread the word about the beauties of Karlovac and the diversity of the tourist offer of this region.”, Said at the premiere presentation of Karlovac County Prefect Damir Jelic.Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli was also at the premiere of the video and described it as “very professional” and stressed that it will have its premiere at other tourism fairs where Croatia will be presented. “Karlovac is located in a strategically important tourist position and can accommodate tourists almost all year round. I was recently at a camp here in the county where 90 percent of the foreign guests stay there for an average of 3-4 days. Therefore, when we talk about tourism 365 days a year, we are talking about counties such as Karlovačka, which they showed with this tourist video. Karlovac has definitely become a tourist destination, and Karlovac County a tourist county.”, Said Minister Gary Cappelii.last_img read more

Grappling with bureaucracy, new ministers struggle to spend money fast enough: Sri Mulyani

first_img“When COVID-19 hit, the original budget funds needed to be shifted, some of the spending needed to be cut, some of it reprioritized, and then the new money came in for the new priorities. These are all different challenges that they need to manage while we are all working from home,” she added.She estimated that Indonesia’s economic growth would be around zero percent this year as economic activity might start to normalize by September. The government is pinning its hopes on the Rp 695.2 trillion (US$46.6 billion) it has allocated to finance the country’s fight against the pandemic’s impact on the health system and the economy. However, disbursement of the stimulus funds has been slow. Only around 21 percent or Rp 151 trillion of the allocation has been spent so far. “President [Joko] Jokowi [Widodo] has asked to pour out the money through the economy, but pouring it out isn’t like flushing it down the toilet […]; somebody is going to audit you,” Sri Mulyani said.  The government is in a race against the clock to deliver funds to the public to cushion the impacts of the pandemic, but for new ministers the bureaucracy is making budget disbursement challenging, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati has said.The state budget had changed “dramatically” in the face of the pandemic, with some budget items being shifted, others cut and allocations reprioritized to best address the shocks the pandemic posed for the country’s healthcare system, economy and social welfare, which the new ministers had to adapt to, she said. “Some of the ministers are new. I thought all of the ministers were like me, who knows the bureaucracy, the policies, the budget documents. But, no, […] they even never worked in the government before,” Sri Mulyani said on Wednesday during The Jakarta Post’s webinar Jakpost Up Close: Reimagining the future of Indonesia’s economy.  Topics :center_img Read also: Pandemic an opportunity for reforms in Indonesia: Sri MulyaniThe minister went on to explain that data and detailed policy implementation were crucial to enable spending accountability.“The President is asking, this is the time that you [the ministers] have to look on the very details, really working on micro-details on what you need to do in the current situation,” the former managing director of the World Bank said.“The good side is that, actually, with this intensity of video conference discussions, we can virtually work 24 hours a day, every hour back-to-back. Basically, we are just working like crazy at this moment,” she noted.last_img read more
