With accession to the European Union just weeks away our EEN partners, the Croatian Chamber of Economy, have produced a guide to the Croatian public procurement regime (attached below).
The Balkan country is expected to receive €687.5 million on 1 July 2013 in financial support from the EU, with a further €13.7 billion earmarked for the next strategic period, 2014 – 2020.
Major opportunities have been identified in agriculture, the development of business zones and business complex’s, industry, infrastructure, real estate, renewable energy, science and technology, tourism and the privatisation of state sponsored enterprises. According to KPMG, Croatia has the highest pre – accession EU structural funds absorption rate of any Central Eastern European (CEE) country.
If the trend continues EU entry could secure a welcome boost for the Adriatic country’s economy, with many commentators already drawing parallels with Poland where over 100,000 projects costing €68 billion were completed after the democratic Republic secured membership to the European Union.
