Presidency of the Council of the European union is a great task for a presiding Member State. Considering many expenses that have to be met during the presidency, lesser expenses are often partly covered by sponsors. This is therefore a matter of national competence for the member state holding the Presidency.
Sponsors of the EU2020HR are exclusively Croatian public firms. The possibility of benefiting from sponsorship of the Presidency for any company is excluded.
The EU2020HR has so far signed thirteen sponsorship agreements. Three of the eight provide in-kind contributions (water, juice, coffee). Seven companies make a direct financial donation in the following amounts:
Sponsorship of Hrvatske autoceste d.o.o. and Autocesta Rijeka - Zagreb d.d. includes ENC devices and covers the cost of tolls for high-level meetings outside Zagreb under the companies jurisdiction.
Finally, the national oil company - INA - is the official gasoline supplier.
