"The problem of Infrastructure in Luštica is one of the limiting factors of development, the existing road infrastructure is in a very bad state, the issue of water supply and wastewater disposal is unresolved. These problems must be resolved in accordance with positive environmental protection standards while at the same time meeting the requirements and standards for the construction of such high-class hotels," says the reasoning of the Secretariat for Utilities, Ecology and Energy Efficiency.
