Zagreb, 25 February 2013 - On February 25th the company Toyota, authorized seller and provider of car maintenance services for Japanese cars Toyota and Lexus, headquartered in Zagreb, became a member of the Croatian Olympic marketing family by signing a four years agreement. Its role will be to support the Croatian athletes, especially at the international events in the next couple of years - from the Mediterranean Games in Mersin in July this year up to the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.

The Japanese company Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) is one of the leading companies in the field of sustainable mobility, development of lightweight technology in the automotive industry and many other fields of the so-called green technology.

Toyota comes from a country with which the COC, despite of considerable geographical distance, has excellent friendly relations, especially with its National Olympic committee, what proves also the cooperation agreement signed in 2010. Supporting Tokyo's bid for the Olympics (city-host of the Olympics 1964 that wishes to be re-elected for the Olympics 2020) is part of an effective encouragement of friendly relations between the two Olympic committees.

The agreement was signed by the Secretary General of the Croatian Olympic Committee (COC) Josip Cop and Director of Toyota Dino Brekalo, in the presence of COC President Zlatko Matesa, Assistant to the Secretary General for Marketing Ranko Cetkovic and representatives of numerous media.
