Thanks largely to the tourist season and an increase in seasonal jobs, the number of registered unemployed in Croatia has dropped below 300,000…
According to statistics from the Croatian Employment Service (HZZ), unemployment figures dropped 2.9%, or 8,831 people, from June to 296,094 registered job seekers, and down 6.9% from the same period last year. It was the first time in the last two years that the figure has dropped below 300,000, and the fifth consecutive month that the number of registered unemployed had declined. The Split-Dalmatian County led the way in employment growth in July, followed by the Vukovar-Srijem and Zagreb Counties.
