According to a survey employers in Croatia believe that the key problems they face remain a high tax burden and inefficient public administration and judiciary.
According to the survey, which covered 432 companies, 51% of employers expect the business climate in Croatia to remain more-or-less the same next year. The survey did reveal mild optimism among employers in the Zagreb area, while those in Dalmatia and Slavonia were slightly pessimistic. Their biggest concerns continue to be high taxes and a sub-standard public administration and judiciary.
"Employers don't expect any major changes, in spite of the announcements coming from government and their grand reforms, especially from the Economy Minister. Clearly we're not entirely sure that these reforms will take place. So, if we're talking about the conditions for doing business and investment the majority of employers feel that things will be more or less the same as they were this year," said Davor Majetić from the Croatian Employer’s Association.
