By Colombian Ministry of Defense April 27, 2020 On April 1, as part of the fight against the worldwide illicit drug problem, Colombia and 25 nations of the Americas and Europe initiated the fifth phase of the Orion International Naval Campaign to Combat Drug Trafficking. The campaign has been held in the region since 2018.The campaign consists of multilateral operations that combine efforts and capabilities of 51 national and international institutions and agencies, committed to disrupting narcotrafficking and related crimes by sea and river, through information exchange that allows these nations to strengthen their capabilities for illicit drug interdiction.This effort integrates the multimodal interdiction capabilities of more than 40 maritime and river surface units, 20 air units, and more than 60 interdiction speedboats from the nations involved.Colombia, an international benchmark in the fight against this problem, participates through its Navy, which coordinates the operation with the Army, Air Force, National Police, Financial Information and Analysis Unit, and the Office of the Attorney General.Prior results to Orion’s fifth phaseBefore the Orion International Naval Campaign to Combat Drug Trafficking’s fifth phase started, 17 countries, including Colombia, developed a strategic partnership under international cooperation agreements to maintain the offensive against narcotrafficking in the region during the first months of 2020.This preliminary phase integrated the capabilities of more than 20 agencies and institutions from Colombia, Costa Rica, Belgium, Belize, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Spain, and the United States.In the first three months of 2020, authorities seized more than 130.6 tons of cocaine hydrochloride, equivalent to 326.7 million doses valued at $4.4 billion, which represented 129,167 acres of illicit crops. The results for marijuana seizures were 15.4 tons, representing 38.5 million doses, with an estimated $77 million value.In this same period, authorities intercepted 12 semisubmersibles and 57 vessels, and arrested 174 people of different nationalities. The arrest and seizures substantially affect the narcotrafficking chain, significantly prevent drug consumption, and decrease the supply, representing a key contribution to the countries’ safety and public health.With its participation and leadership in the Orion International Naval Campaign to Combat Drug Trafficking, Colombia reaffirms its commitment to work together to counter this scourge to improve regional interoperability, strengthen trust and multimodal maritime and riverine interdiction, join the international effort, and dismantle narcotrafficking networks, among other objectives.
The panel concludes that rural tourism in the Split-Dalmatia County has been growing in recent years, but overall it is still at a low level. The cooperation of all institutions, the creation of a destination and a real tourist product, and learning from those who have already done so, are extremely important for its development.

The Imotski Tourist Board is the only tourist board in the Split-Dalmatia County, and its director Luka Kolovrat stated that the past few years have recorded extremely good results, ie an increase in both the number of accommodation facilities and the number of overnight stays. “There are several factors that have led to this positive change and growth – transport infrastructure and the tunnel of St. Ilija is an exceptional wind in our backs, and there is also the prevailing trend for family houses, the step forward of the renters themselves, the emergence of several strong travel agencies, media advertising and various incentives, “said Kolovrat. The destination Dalmatinska zagora, which was declared the most successful rural tourism destination in 2018 at the Days of Croatian Tourism, was presented by the director of the Sinj Tourist Board, Monika Vrgoč. ” From year to year we record an increase in the number of accommodation facilities.

Assistance to agricultural farms in applying for tenders is provided by LAG Adrion, whose activities were presented by the head of the LAG, Ivanka Ribičić, while Vinarija Matković, one of the members of the LAG, was highlighted as an excellent example of rural tourism development. Domagoj Matković, the owner of the Matković winery, which has been operating since 1998, opened a wine tasting last year, which has already resulted in significant business results. The Split-Dalmatia County, as well as Croatia, has a significant natural and socio-cultural basis for the development of rural tourism, said Nataša Bušić from the Croatian Chamber of Commerce in the Split County Chamber. and added ” However, this basis is not sufficiently and properly used, and despite the huge potential of rural tourism in our county and Croatia, compared to that in the coastal part, occupies a relatively small share and is still not sufficiently developed.” Cover photo TZ Splitsko-dalmatinska županija / Source: HGK
