Obersnel's current term is marked by an extremely successful withdrawal of funds from the European Union for financing large development projects in Rijeka, but also for a number of smaller projects. All of Obersnel’s terms are marked by a strong social agenda that has evolved and expanded over the years. Today, Rijeka is recording positive results in all areas, both in the economic indicators of the activities of the economic and entrepreneurial sector, as well as in tourism, the development of the University, and professional, scientific and service activities. It has become a successful, modern European city whose openness is the best guarantee of future development.
In the past 17 years, Obersnel has been actively involved in a number of organizations and associations dealing with the development of local self-government, decentralization and positioning cities as the drivers of development for entire regions. Also, Mayor Obersnel is one of the Vice-Chairs of the EU Committee of the Regions and a member of the Committee on the Environment, Climate Change and Energy and the Committee on Territorial Cohesion Policy and the EU Budget.
At NEMO’s European Museum Conference 2020, Vojko Obersnel will on 16 November welcome the participants to the conference.
