AmCham organized a meeting with Mr. Dražen Božić and Mrs. Sanja Zadro from the Central State Office for the Development of Digital Society and Mr. Slaven Bojko from the Financial Agency.
In the period from 2017 to 2020, AmCham cooperated intensively with the Central State Office for the Development of the Digital Society, FINA and a number of other state institutions on the realization of enabling card and online payments for citizens and companies in the public administration offices. The basis for cooperation was AmCham's position paper, Introduction of card payments in public administration. The result of the cooperation is the strong contribution of AmCham in the implementation of the e-Pristojbe project.
At the end of 2022, Croatia successfully implemented the e-Pristojbe project, which created a unique application for card and online payment of administrative fees and fees of state institutions in Croatia. Among the public users, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure and the Customs and Tax Administration should be highlighted. It is announced that the number of institutions and services that will use e-Pristojbe will be expanded.
In the last four years, there has been a constant increase in the amount of card processing transactions in public administration bodies, and further growth can be expected in the coming time.
