Paul Green, the Austrian shoe manufacturer, has decided to locate its new factory in Medjimurje County, in northern Croatia. The company said that the region has a strong shoemaking industry and that young Austrians aren't interested in joining the trade. It will invest €5 million into the new facility, which should employ 200 people when it opens in 2013. Paul Green makes about 2 million pairs of women's shoes every year.
