International Cooperation

Since its foundation, the Croatian Olympic Committee has had intense international cooperation following the basic principles of the development of Olympism and sport, its important role in better understanding among countries and strengthening friendly relations among them.
In its early days as an independent country, when Croatia did not have its own embassies and consulates, the Croatian Olympic Committee established an honorary post of the Ambassador for the Croatian Olympic Committee, which has been held by Croatian athletes and sports officials, patriots and prominent sporting figures throughout the world. Besides by numerous protocols and cooperation agreements with NOC-s, it has been actively enhancing its role in the international sports community through the activities of Croats in the bodies of the International Olympic Committee, European Olympic Committees, International Mediterranean Games Committee, and by organizing and hosting international seminars and gatherings and other forms of international cooperation, such as meetings of the South-East European countries. The Croatian Olympic Committee is involved in most projects of the IOC Olympic Solidarity, training of coaches and sports officials and international marketing projects. It has initiated and actively promoted culture and Olympic education at an international level.
