Gala Evening 25 Years of AmCham

The American Chamber of Commerce in Croatia is celebrating 25 years of operations. 25 years of connecting business leaders, advocating for competitive business environment and contributing to development of Croatian economy and society.

We would like to thank all distinguished members and guests who participated in this gala celebration, which was held on October 4, 2023, at 19:00 at the Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall with a performance by the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra.

Today, AmCham is strongly integrated into the Croatian business community. Most of our work today relates to the work of our committees on proposals for improving the business climate and cooperation with ministries, parliamentary committees and the office of the President. We are no longer just a place for socializing, but also a strong and unifying voice of business for those changes that will make Croatia more competitive and innovative.

AmCham is also a place of diversity. Diversity of cultures, industries and business interests. But also a place of tolerance, transparency and consensus through which our 326 members make decisions and recommendations for the Croatian business environment. Building relationships is at the core of our organization and the fact that our members, partners and stakeholders celebrated this beautiful anniversary with us makes us proud.

The previous years brought many uncertainties and challenges for both society and the Croatian business community. Even in these difficult circumstances, AmCham's membership grew because companies recognized the value that AmCham brings as an agile and proactive representative of the private sector that offers realistic solutions in dialogue with institutions.

AmCham is made up of people who support each other, our gatherings whether at events, board meetings or delegations, joy at success, and unforgettable moments often accompanied by bursts of laughter.

AmCham is also a link to the world with the best access to knowledge, technologies and a network of business contacts. This sets us apart from all other business organizations.

Our future plans will be based on establishing everything we have done so far. We will think proactively, innovatively and discuss priorities, best practices and ways to achieve our common goals. Our vision is to become a kind of nursery of knowledge, "think thank", which will form long-term visions of development.
