Scott Havens, CEO of Bloomberg Media, greeted participants via video call. He noted that he looks forward to working with a local partner who shares a commitment to independent journalism and a belief that smart ideas and new perspectives can shape the future of the business.
“We started this project from you, entrepreneurs, we wanted to understand what you lack in the media and create a platform that will respond to all your needs. We want to erase the classic border between media and consumers and create a business community through which you will receive the content you want, in a language you understand and that you can share information that is important to you, “said Rusmir Nefic, CEO of Bloomberg Adria.
Bloomberg Adria Chief Operating Officer Samo Ošina emphasized that the goal of the project is to create not only a business medium, but also a business network of new opportunities for today and tomorrow. “It is our responsibility to provide information, analyze market developments and provide people in leadership positions with the best possible basis for decision-making,” Osina said.
Damir Zorić, president of the Croatian Employers’ Association (HUP), said that speed is crucial in today’s world, but that it carries with it the danger of superficiality. “Your reputation is that you are reliable and I hope you will stay that way because speed is important, but it is not crucial. We need reliable information and that is why you will have the support of us from the business community in your work, “said Zoric.
Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac said that Croatia had achieved numerous economic and social achievements in the last 30 years. “We expect the imminent entry into the Eurozone and Schengen, which will further strengthen the Croatian economy. Along the way, it is important to have good partners who encourage the development of Croatia through quality, positive and credible reporting. Bloomberg Adria helps decision makers in large companies and their employees to strengthen their finances by following and understanding global economic trends. We believe that in the year in which we are moving faster towards full integration into the Eurozone, we have a lot of good financial news from Croatia, and it will be available for all necessary information in order to timely, accurately and objectively report to the public, “concluded Nikolina Brnjac.
