Big Plans Day

As part of one of the largest business conferences in Croatia Big Plans Day 2020, organized by the business weekly Lider, a panel discussion was held on the topic Business development and risk management. Along with the President of the Management Board of AD Plastik Group Marinko Došen, the panel was attended by the founder and member of the Management Board of Business Intelligence Anita Cvetić Oreščanin, the founder and President of the Management Committee of JGL and the founder and President of the Supervisory Board Tokić d.o.o Ilija Tokić. The discussion was moderated by Miodrag Šajatović, Editor-in-Chief of Lider.

Planning in uncommon conditions, experiences during the crisis and recovery predictions were the main topics of the panel discussion.

“I believe that the automotive industry will recover faster than planned, so in 2022 we can expect a return to the volumes before the crisis. Already next year will be a year of recovery for the industry and for us. Announcements of our customers, which are better than our expectations, also give us reasons for mild optimism. The number of vehicles on assembly is higher than forecast in May and June, which is very good. I think the worst period is behind us. Cars have proven to be one of the safest means of transport in this crisis as well, so there is no reason to fear. Vehicles will certainly continue to be produced and the automotive industry will be developed. For example, no Renault Clio in Slovenia can be produced without our components. Slovenian Revoz now assembles over 600 vehicles a day, which is a very good trend. Our plans are ambitious, we have adapted them to the current situation, but we are planning for the long term. We currently have 50 active projects whose serial production is yet to follow. The new deals that we have sealed speak in favor of that also,” said Marinko Došen, among other things.

For the twelfth time, Big Plans Day gathered key names of the Croatian business community, and despite very challenging times, there was no lack of optimism among the participants. After the welcoming speeches of the organizers and partners, introductory speeches were given by the Governor of the Croatian National Bank Boris Vujčić, the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Tomislav Ćorić and the President of the Republic of Croatia Zoran Milanović.
