Covid-4. Fine dining as a zone of luxury and socially integrative activities because of these two criteria belongs to entrepreneurship that will recover the longest: people do not have to travel and eat in expensive restaurants or socialize with fine dining dinners and spend on pairing food and wine, Gashi points out and adds : “Between 60 and 90% of fine dining restaurant guests are international gourmet clients who will not be coming to Croatia this year. Therefore, the business of this hospitality sector in 2020 is vitally endangered, with significant negative effects on the next season, and a quality model of retaining workers and economizing business in conditions where there is no income are necessary for the survival of the sector” It is important to emphasize that the business of fine dining restaurants employs a large number of year-round and skilled workers and through raising the quality of our tourism directly affects the extension of the tourist season and positioning Croatia in top gastro destinations.

Government measures do not offer solutions for preserving jobs and maintaining the economic cycle for entrepreneurs who make up 90% of the Croatian economy. Although each entrepreneurial sector has its own specifics, including the hospitality segment we deal with, the measures expressed in the Voice of Entrepreneurs articulate the basic needs of all of us in the real sector, especially in medium, small and micro companies to which we belong, together with our employees.”, Said Marina Gaši, President of JRE Croatia. “Long-term efforts to recognize Croatia as a gastronomic destination, in which our members have made a huge contribution, may fail at this moment if we do not take decisive and appropriate measures. We will permanently lose the knowledge and skills of all our employees if we fail to keep them in their jobs, so this is perhaps the biggest risk of this crisis.Gaša adds that since it is impossible to predict how long this crisis will last, they support the initiative to form a crisis headquarters and adopt real, effective measures by the Croatian Government, and that they expect the Government to take steps that will practically help the long-term sustainability of the economy.
