As of today, the new Minister of Tourism and Sports is Dr. sc. Nikolina Brnjac. Croatia has at its disposal a number of experienced experts who will surely want to help, but you just need to ask them. Today more than ever, we need less policy, and more synergies and a focus on market development. Ultimately, form is the least important, what we need is the efficiency and productivity of the entire country, including the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the CNTB. And it’s all down to people and politics. University textbooks: “The role and importance of intermodal transport in the freight transport market”; UNIZG, Zagreb, May 17, 5″Analysis of the possibility of developing the Croatian Railways system with reference to intermodality”; Croatian Chamber of Commerce, April 16, 2013″Supply chain risks”; LOMI, Krapina 2014″The role of human capital in the management of supply chains or logistics systems”; SCO Logistics, LOGIN 07, 2014. As always, I personally believe that everyone has the right to a chance, including the new Minister of Tourism and Sports, and time will show how the Ministry of Tourism and Sports will function from now on.

Interestingly, so far the new Minister of Tourism and Sports, at least according to official data, has no experience in the tourism sector, which has provoked negative reactions from the tourism profession. So the new minister faces a great challenge to prove herself and earn the trust of the profession. Surrounding yourself with experienced and professional people, especially those from the real sector, is a winning combination for every minister, including a new minister. We need a leader and a manager who will know how to arrange all the pieces of our tourist mosaic. Especially in the coming period, when the reform of the entire tourism sector and a new modern tourism paradigm for the 21st century are expected.

The merger of liner businesses of Japan’s big three shipping companies, Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL), and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line), will have a far-reaching impact on NYK’s business, according to the company’s president Tadaaki Naito.“This liner integration will have far-reaching impacts, and I believe it is a major turning point for the group,” Naito noted while speaking on the occasion of the company’s 132nd anniversary.The new joint-venture company, announced in October last year, is planned to start operations in April of next year.As explained by Naito, the decision to integrate the liner business was made in order to achieve competitive strength by “securing critical mass in terms of operational scale and ensure the business survives.” “The new joint-venture company will utilize the best practices of the three companies and everything will be created from scratch, and this will require significant effort. For us, getting the new company off to a smooth start will initially be the most important issue. Following this, it is my expectation that the business will be able to achieve stable profits,” he added.Currently, NYK’s liner business accounts for almost 30% of sales, 19% of all employees, and 13% of operational ships group-wide.Through the integration, this huge division will be shifted outside the company as an affiliated company accounted for by the equity method, Naito said.As disclosed, once the integration is complete, it will be necessary for the remaining divisions to take over the functions that are currently performed by the liner business division, including fostering international personnel.Naito further stressed that the company would “aggressively work to increase sales.”“In response to this, we have reviewed the governance of the group companies operating around the world and have decided to shift to a new organizational framework from April 1 of next year. In addition, while the new joint-venture company will adopt the best practices from each line with the aim of increasing its competitive ability and overtaking the competition, the businesses that are peripheral to and affiliated with the liner business — such as domestic terminals and harbor transport within Japan, tugboat services, inland transportation, and ship management — need to further refine their capabilities and achieve even higher competitive strength in order to survive in the new era,” he noted.“In this way, through the liner business integration, the entire group will face a major turning point.”Moreover, due to the ongoing changes in the business environment, the company president said that as of next year, NYK will revise the group management structure from the ground up and shift to a structure that enables “the effective use of management assets throughout the group. “
