Very interesting was the report as well as a panel discussion on the current legislative framework for real estate bussiness and market regulation, especially given the current announcement of real estate tax.
Particularly interesting was a lecture on the positive experiences from neighboring Ljubljana, in particular on the establishment of a state-up ecosystem, new approaches to the design, BIM – Building Information Modeling and CDE – Common data environment.
All topics on the conference are inevitable indicator that Croatia, if wants to attract investors as it successfully does Ljubljana and smart cities in the EU such as Amsterdam or Florence, firstly must become aware of economic potential in the real estate market as one of the EU Member States. Also, better highlight of Croatian geostrategic position, opening the door to new technologies and innovations, giving a stronger incentive to creative industries and finally more flexible legislation, both regarding real estates and employment.
