New Concepts of Cooperation with China: Congratulations prof. Dr. Simonić!
We are proud of our friend, founder and president of the Croatian-Chinese Friendship Society Rijeka, prof. Dr. Anto Simonić, who China awarded with the prestigious Friendship Award.
It is the biggest acknowledgment that is given to foreigners in China, which includes the reception of the President, Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of China. Dr. Simonić is the first Croatian to have been awarded this high award because he has built up a bridge of friendship and trust between the two countries, on which many of us go by today. Dr. Simonić set the foundation for new international co- operation.
Together we’ve opened the door for the expansion of the international cooperation in China, through the International Mountain Tourism Alliance (IMTA), within which we present our 30 years of working in health tourism through the new concept of eco- health tourism.
We sincerely congratulate Dr. Simonić on this recognition for the long-term work, persistence and the ability to recognize the values of the two countries.
