Testing the resilience of the Croatian macroeconomics. How innovations and tourism-driven consumption fuel thriving businesses?

The American Chamber of Commerce in Croatia and the leading CEE focused private equity fund Enterprise Investors organized an executive event on innovations, tourism-driven consumption and resilience of the Croatian macroeconomics.

Historically, tourism has been the main driver of economic growth and sound results of Croatian companies. However, innovation is increasingly making its mark on the corporate world and propelling the local economy. But what are the additional perks of innovation and tourism-driven consumption, especially in today’s challenging economic environment? And what is the role of private equity funds in stimulating growth and employment?

A meeting between representatives of Croatia’s most powerful companies and leading experts from various industries was an opportunity to exchange opinions and gain a different perspective on upcoming prospects and challenges.
