PM: I Would Not Change With Switzerland, Croatia Has More Potential


“I think Croatia has more potential. If somebody asked me would I like to be Switzerland, as a Croat I would hesitate,” said Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic in an interview today with RTL danas, adding that he would not change with most countries as he sees huge potential in Croatia.

Speaking on Croatian Independence Day, Milanovic also said that celebrating this date was not required as Croatia’s independence dates back to the 7th Century.

Milanovic urged Croats to be patient and to give his government a longer term in office before being critical and he promised that things would improve.

“At the first opportunity, when things get better and we have a bit of money, because now there is no money, wages will be higher for teachers and professors,” said Milanovic.
