 The Rovinj boutique hotel Adriatic, which is part of the Maistra hotel company, was awarded on Thursday night as the best new hotel this year and the award ceremony in Zagreb concluded this year's Rexpo 2015 investment fair.

The fourth edition of the Rexpo fair over the past two days was a forum presenting investment projects and opportunities in various sectors in Croatia, particularly in tourism, which was in the focus of the fair's second day.

The Avenue Group presented its investment plans for the Kupari tourism complex in southern Croatia and a panel discussion was held on investments in tourism, at which it was concluded that interest in this field is not waning and that this trend should continue.

Deputy Tourism Minister Daglas Koraca underscored that all new investments are following the tourism development strategy and one of the strategy's aims - raising the share of the hotel sector in an effort to make Croatia one of the 20 most competitive destinations around the globe.

A representatives of the Le Meridien Lav hotel in Split said that there were only about 30 odd five-star hotels in Croatia and that that was why they were investing in Split which lacked that type of hotel and which was interesting all year round and not just in summer.
