King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain are on two days long official visit to Croatia. This is Felipe and Letizia’s first official visit to the country as the King and Queen of Spain. Yesterday after the official welcome in the day, King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended a dinner hosted by the President and First Lady of Croatia – Zoran Milanović, and First Lady, Sanja Musić.
Felipe and Letizia began day 2 in Croatia with a visit to the headquarters of the Croatian State Archives, where they inaugurated the Croatia-Spain Forum IFMIF-DONES. Organized by the Ministry of Science and Education of the Government of Croatia, with the support of the Embassy of Spain in Zagreb the forum aims to highlight the IFMIF-DONES project – International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility – Demo Oriented NEu-tron Source, and its importance as one of the most outstanding milestones in the cooperation between Spain and Croatia, in the year in which both countries are celebrating the 30 anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.
Secondly, the Forum offered a solemn occasion for the signing, by the Minister of Science and Education of Croatia, Radovan Fuchs, and the Minister of Science and Innovation of Spain, Diana Morant, of the Memorandum of Understanding between Spain and Croatia that supposed, figuratively, the placement of the first legal brick in the construction of the network of mutual commitments on which the IFMIF-DONES project will be based. And, thirdly, the Forum has a very relevant business dimension, since, for the construction and operation of IFMIF-DONES, the competition of companies with a high technological profile will be necessary. Among the participants in the Forum were several companies and associations of Spanish companies.
The next stop of the day was the residence of the Ambassador of Spain in Croatia where King Felipe and Queen Letizia met with the Spanish Community living in Croatia. This sort of meeting has always been a must in Felipe and Letizia’s international visit where they meet the Spaniards living out of Spain and learnt about their lives at home away from home.
Next Felipe and Letizia have separate agendas, while Felipe visited Croatian Parliament and Government Palace (Banski Dvor), Queen Letizia joined the First lady for a visit to the “SUVAG” – a Hearing and Speech Rehabilitation Clinic, SUVAG one of the educational institutions in which the physical activity module has been successfully installed, within of the national program “Healthy Life”.
