Ladies and Gentlemen,
I would like to welcome you to the 2016 ISU Congress in Dubrovnik, on the behalf of the Croatian Skating Federation and my personal behalf. We consider it a great honor that an event of this magnitude is being held at one of the most beautiful towns in the Mediterranean. The Croatian Skating Federation always strives to be a force in the world of sport and to be a part of positive movements and changes that benefit the greater good. We are proud of our close cooperation with the ISU and the IOC and we are certain that hosting important events such as this Congress will help us be a part of a bright future for sport in general and skating in particular. We will do our best that all of our dear guests always feel welcome and that they enjoy the beautiful City of Dubrovnik despite their busy schedule and hard work. We hope that all of you will leave with plenty of fond memories and wishing to return one day.
Have a successful and enjoyable stay!
Morana Paliković Gruden
President of the Croatian Skating Federation
