In the occasion of the incoming 59th World Ploughing Contest, President of the Republic of Croatia Ivo Josipović, received a delegation of the Croatian Association for the Organization of Ploughing Contests (HUONO) on 27th September 2011. Reception has taken place after 9th Ploughing Contest of the Republic of Croatia, where representatives who will participate at the 59th World Contest became known. 

Bearing in mind that, ploughing is the primary tillage operation in agricultural production, the long history of World Championships and Croatian membership in the World Ploughing Organization, the delegation presented the importance of this event as an opportunity to present Croatia as a agricultural, but also as a tourist country.

They stressed out that it is expected the arrival of, so far, the greatest number of representatives, from over 30 countries worldwide, and a large number of visitors.
