Who Are Croatia’s Best Exporters?

The Croatian Exporters Awards were held for the 6th time in the Croatian capital Zagreb last night. The ‘Golden Key’ awards recognise the best exporters in Croatia and last night’s awards were significant for exporters as Croatia enters into the single market from 1 July.

Croatia entering the European Union will lose a part of its exports on paper because goods going to EU member states will not be counted on the balance sheet. Exports are expected to drop from 1 July.

“From the first of July and entry into the EU we will lose our rights to the Central European Free Trade Agreement, and also on the local market where companies from the EU invest. Also goods from countries that have trade agreements with the EU will also arrive, said Darinko Bago from the Croatian Exporters Association.

Croatian exports have jumped from 648 USD per tonne of goods to 936 USD, whilst imports have also creeped from 1264 USD to 1358 USD per tonne.
Last night’s winners at the export awards were:

Main Category: Ericsson Nikola Tesla

Italy – Plamen (cast iron manufacturers)
Bosnia & Herzegovina – TDR (cigarettes)
