KRONIKA
Twenty-eight participants of the symposium,
who came from Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Hun-
gary, the Czech Republic, the Republic of Slova-
kia, Poland, Bulgaria, Ireland, Israel, Korea and
the USA, referred to the so far under-appreciated
compositions by Zajc; discussed the phenomenon
of the dissemination of his work, in particular in
the Slavic world, as well as the related aspects con-
cerning migrations and cultural transfer in music in
general. They referred to several conceptual trends
characteristic of the music culture of a longer pe-
riod, in relation to which Zajc’s oeuvre might be
considered special and valuable – both nationally
and internationally. The participants visited the
Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb, where they
listened to the most popular opera by Ivan Zajc
Nikola Šubić Zrinjski –
and to his vocal and in-
strumental works. This experience was very satisfy-
ing and enabled the participants to acquire a more
complete notion of Zajc’s opus. The participants
were additionally thrilled by the presence of Vera
Wantur pl. Dolovćak, Zajc’s great-granddaughter,
who came from Germany especially for this occa-
sion and told them several anecdotes from the life
of her famous ancestor.
RAZVOJNI POTENCIJALI
HRVATSKOG GOSPODARSTVA
Hrvatska akademija i Ekonomski fakultet Sveu-
čilišta u Zagrebu organizirali su 16. listopada 2014.
znanstveni skup
Razvojni potencijali hrvatskog gos-
podarstva
kojim se željelo pokazati da Hrvatska još
uvijek raspolaže dovoljnim potencijalima da samo-
stalno pokrene dugoročan održivi razvoj. Uvodno
izlaganje o strategiji razvoja i prirodnim resursima
održao je akademik Gordan Družić, koji je podsje-
tio da je Akademija još 1995. upozorila na negativne
trendove u kretanju vanjskotrgovinske bilance, ino-
zemnog duga i nezaposlenosti i nakon toga održala
niz znanstvenih skupova posvećenih dugoročnoj
strategiji gospodarskog razvoja Hrvatske. Istaknuo
je da je Hrvatska po zalihama vode treća u Europi i
osma u svijetu te je spomenuo potencijale poljopri-
vrede, šumarstva, geotermalne energije i biomase.
“Hrvatska bi mogla gotovo sasvim pristojno živjeti
samo od pravilne valorizacije svojega prometnog po-
ložaja. Krajnje je vrijeme da iskoristimo bar nešto od
resursa koje imamo jer ako nećemo mi, onda će to
iskoristiti netko drugi, ali sve to zahtijeva promje-
ne u našim razmišljanjima, što je najteže postići.”
poručio je akademik Družić. (M. L.)
POTENTIALS FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF
CROATIAN ECONOMY
On 16 October 2014, the Croatian Academy of
Sciences and Arts and the Faculty of Economics
and Business of the University of Zagreb organised
a symposium entitled
Potentials for the Development
of Croatian Economy
, the objective of which was to
prove that Croatia still possessed sufficient poten-
tials for the independent launching of long-term
sustainable development. Academy Member Gor-
dan Družić gave the introductory speech on devel-
opmental strategy and natural resources, reminding
listeners that the Croatian Academy of Sciences and
Arts had warned – as early as in 1995 – of negative
trends regarding foreign-trade balance, foreign debt
and unemployment; subsequently, the Academy or-
ganised a sequence of symposia tackling a long-term
strategy for the economic development of Croatia.
He stressed that in terms of water supplies, Croatia
was number three in Europe and number eight in
the world; he further mentioned Croatia’s potentials
