I will visit Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) and Serbia from 9 to 15 July 2017 to strengthen bilateral relations and advance Australia’s economic and security interests in the region.

This year Croatia and Australia celebrate 25 years of diplomatic relations. I will meet President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Foreign Minister Marija Pejcinovic Buric to discuss ways to build on our good bilateral relations, our strong people-to-people links and promote opportunities for Australian exporters. I will also attend an event at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, to promote the participation of young women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
