The Gold Coast project as a bright future for the island of Pag or just an investor?

first_imgWhat is your opinion: The Gold Coast project as a bright future for the island of Pag or just an investor? The Golden Coast project was presented at the Mimara Museum in Zagreb Ede Marzic, an investment that envisages the construction of an entire new town on Pag in which, according to the investor’s plan, more than 10.000 people would live, reports Jutarnji list. The whole project also has its own promotional bus which promotes the investor’s vision of the development of Pag. The psychology and play on words behind the whole project is interesting, and it best reveals the front image of the bus (above) and the rear image of the bus (below). Of course, the attachment points out that no one is against the whole project. An interesting idea, perhaps to give the investor the entire island of Pag on a 100-year concession, and to make it a new “Cote d’Azur”? We do not need such investments. Especially the story of how to create a paradise on earth and great benefits for the locals. A paradise on earth that would be empty for most of the year and a ghost town, of the closed type, probably with cheap foreign labor, all using the main natural resource for a small concession fee. Of course, the intentions of investors are earnings and that is legitimate, in fact, earnings are the meaning of every business. Of course this is just my opinion, without any bad intentions. Rather, the investor has his own vision and wants to make money, which is absolutely legitimate. He offered his project and vision and put it on the table. Maybe the project is realized, and maybe not, like any other investment. But it is my opinion that we do not need such investments, in the context of closed resorts for the elite. From the music, the statements of the locals, the arguments and counter-arguments, the visuals, etc.… everything is nicely connected from frame to frame. What I’m sure of, no shots are random in this video. Watch the promotional video describing the entire investment and the project “Pag – Gold Coast” Comment: How about giving the whole island of Pag to investors for a concession? Of course from the perspective of investors this story could not be better, something similar to the theme of concessions on the beaches, to close and put a fence only for hotel guests. For the investor “golden coca”. The city for 10.000 people who would come to Pag a couple of times a year and would never go out of the “resort” makes no sense. Zlatna obala Hrvatske – reportage by Goran Milic / YouTube.com Promotional video Gold Coast When you look at the whole article, one of the conclusions that can certainly be drawn is that in fact the whole project is not in the interest of the investor, nor his earnings. No, the investor does all this exclusively for the prosperity of the island of Pag and its local population. Good marketing and a story that has been read for a long time. Also, I am fascinated by the fact that the desire to help the local population has been repeatedly emphasized. Everything is very nicely packaged through both videos. Everything has already been invented – it is one of the slogans of the whole project. That already closed resorts have long been invented and long ago proved to be bad for the whole local community in other countries, such as Spain, Turkey, Greece… Indeed, and Spain realized that this was the wrong direction of development, today they see it on their skin and they are now trying to develop tourism in a slightly different way (a little late when the coast as a major resource was destroyed). Croatia has the most valuable resource, and that is nature, ie the sea coast, which, fortunately for us or unfortunately (incompetence), is not completely destroyed, and therefore very attractive to large investors. This artificially dug canal would be the heart of the Pag residential project, the moment with which the island would gain access to the open sea for the first time and naturally connect to the existing Pag canal, concludes the Jutarnji list supplement. The golden coast of Croatia, as the whole project is called, would be golden only for the investor, and at least for the local population of the island of Pag. Looking for information about the project, I found this interesting article where the investor talks a little more about the whole vision of the project. The well-known journalist Goran Milić leads us through the entire article, whose credibility I assume should give credibility to the whole project? But I have to admit that the promotional video of the whole project is very cleverly put together, of course in the interest of investors. It’s as if the video director is Hollywood director Oliver Stone or Steven Spielberg with the support of top marketing and communication experts. The owner of the Hotel Pag and Camp Šimuni announced earlier that the realization of the project would cost between 500 and 700 million euros, and on Tuesday the first simulations of the settlement in the Pag bay Dinjiška were presented. Maržić’s plan is to dig a canal that would connect Dinjiška Bay with the town of Pag and whose entire course would be built and inhabited residential, luxury real estate, apartments and villas equipped with the best and most expensive furniture, but also a complete service that would include daily restaurant services and delivery of three meals daily to the doorstep, garage spaces for cars, hotel accommodation for residents and service staff, obligatory with knowledge of the mother tongue of the residents and with the manners of the best European and world catering workers. The dream of the generation of the island of Pag, everyone will sell to the country and give everything just to realize the project, sadness and grief, there is no future, the Government is praying, everyone is for the project, everyone is interested in this project, great future, rebirth are some slogans that are pulled through the video. As if there is no alternative, and the investor is the only savior. According to Maržić, it should be a luxury closed city, the most elite sea oasis in the world, with a complete service and other infrastructure adapted to the elderly who will be able to buy residential real estate on the island of Pag, each with its own berth or luxury yacht, and with access to the open sea, which Pažani, Maržić claims, will get precisely thanks to his vision.last_img read more
