Milanovic said that he was satisfied with the work his government had done in its first 12 months in charge, however he was not satisfied with the results to date. Essential labour reforms have been slow in the making, but the Prime Minister believes that his government is paving the way for investors in Croatia.
“For the first time this government has cut taxes on the business sector, we are restoring order, budget revenues are coming in above projections, we want business people to come to Croatia with the knowledge that they can make money here,” said Milanovic, before sending a message to those willing to invest.
“Banks are liquid and there is money for everyone who wants to work,” the PM said.
Milanovic dismissed Standard & Poor’s recent credit rating downgrade of Croatia to “junk” as “a matter of opinion” and that the rate of interest at which Croatia borrow at has remained the same.
