Croatian president Ivo Josipovic visits Burgenland

Croatian president Ivo Josipovic visits Burgenland

During a trip to Austria the Croatian president Ivo Josipovic has met with staff from the minority languages unit of the ORF studios in Burgenland.

The Ethnic Groups Editorial Office produces programmes for ethic minorities were praised by Josipovic, who expressed his gratitude for television, radio and web material produced in the Croatian language. The Croatian spoken in Burgenland differs from standard Croatian, but Josipovic was particularly impressed by the area's conservation of the native tongue.

Croatia's entry to the EU next year will enable better relations with Burgenland and should be a positive move for the studio's production of media for ethnic minorities.

The Burgenland studios have revealed that the recording of the interview with the Croatian president will feature in the programme "Dobar Dan Hrvati" on 11 November.

The interview marked the end of the president's itinerary. On this trip he toured Burgenland from Neudorf in the north to Güttenbach in the south, met the region's mayor Hans Niessl and made visits to two schools; a new middle school in Großwarasdorf and a bilingual grammar school in Oberwart.

Josipovic is far from the average politician – having graduated law school he has also made a name for himself as a composer.
