The legal solution regarding Swiss francs (CHF) loans should be found at a government session this week because it is scheduled to be held at the regular session of the Croatian Parliament next week, Orehovičko Deputy Prime Minister Branko Grčić announced on Monday in Brestovac.

The draft law is fully prepared, said Deputy Prime Minister and Regional Development Minister and EU Grcic, in that county in Krapina-Zagorje County, where he opened a new sports hall of the school there, together with the Minister of Science, Education and Sports, Vedran Mornar, largely financed from his ministry's money.

To the journalist's question as to whether the campaign was pre-election, Grcic said that it was mainly at the opening of projects built with the resources of his ministry and that in that sense the election campaign "lasts" for four years.

Grčić announced larger projects that should be funded by EU funds. Thus he announced that for the end of October it is planned to submit a project for the financing of the Pelješac Bridge construction project. According to Grcic, this is one of the biggest projects that will take place until the end of the mandate of this government.

He mentioned projects and the construction or renovation of student homes in the amount of 230 million kuna, as well as the project of construction of the Dubrovnik airport, worth EUR 250, as well as the Ciovo bridge and numerous water supply systems.

"Only in six months of this year, the EU budget was paid 3 billions of kunas, which is about two billion more than in the same period last year. That's enough to say what work we did in terms of preparation, and now the big wave of spending money and absorption begins, "Grčić said.

Asked about the "Kupari" project, Grčić emphasized that he was going through his time, but that more information should be sought in tourism minister Darko Lorencin.

As for the Strategic Investment Act, Grcic also says that he is going through his course. He said that the 15 or 16 projects have been implemented so far. "Sixthly, they are big projects, and are currently working on removing all the obstacles to their implementation," said Grčić.

The biggest of these projects is the LNG terminal, he adds, but there are a number of other public and private projects, such as the airport in Zadar, the expansion of tourist capacities in Mali Lošinj and the project of waste disposal "Piškornica".
