On May 6, in the premises of the Vukovar-Srijem County in Vinkovci, the head of Plan and Analysis Department at the Croatian Mine Action Centre Mrs. Nataša Mateša Mateković informed the County demining co-ordinator Mr. Zlatko Pavloić about the realization of Humanitarian Demining Plan 2011 so far. In the first four months, there were 39% of areas planned for 2011 demined in Vukovar-Srijem County. The most important was the demining of the remainingmine suspected area of the Bogdanovci municipality. The biggest investor was the Government of the Republic of Croatia.

The County was presented activities to be realized by the end of the year relating to demining of entrepreneurial units in Nijemci and Tordinci municipalities. They should be realized by the funds of the Croatian Forests and donations of PBZ and INA.

The Vukovar-Srijem County has been very active in the field of raising funds for demining of its territory. This year too, there will be areas demined that are important for safety and economic activity in the County.
