Foreign Direct Investments – Economic Policy for Attracting Investments

By joining the European single market Croatian economy became exposed to strong competitive pressures from other EU member states. At the same time, the Single market represents an immense potential for international investors who, through the Croatian market, have access to a market of over 500 million people. Implementation of stable and consistent policy oriented towards attracting foreign direct investments is of utmost importance for the future economic growth of Croatian economy and ensuring new jobs.

Therefore, the Croatian investment strategy should be oriented towards creating a business environment that would enable companies to be globally competitive, but also towards creating an environment that would be entrepreneur friendly and innovative.
