US Ambassador To Croatia: Unstable Tax Policies And Bureaucracy Deter American Investors

America’s ambassador to Croatia Kenneth Merten has said that unstable tax policies in the country is putting off American investors from investing in Croatia.

“We hope that the obstacles which investors are faced with in Croatia are sorted out. When we talk about American investors, they often complain about the unstable tax policies, because they can not plan their investments, and bureaucracy, especially when it comes to local government, ” said Merten.

Merten has been in his role in Zagreb for two and a half months, and says one of his main priorities during his mandate is to remove visa requirements for Croats travelling to the US.
