The Croatian Chamber of Economy (HGK) reacted to the government's national development strategy released late last week, calling it a document of vital importance for the development of society and the economy.
The chamber said the strategy plan must not simply be a wish list - as is sometimes the case - but a guideline for concrete measures.
The government on Thursday unveiled a draft national development strategy until 2030 and put it to public consultation over the next month. A number of institutions and individuals were involved in its drafting, including the HGK.

Among the 13 strategic goals listed in the document is reaching 75 percent of the EU development average by 2030. Given that this would be an improvement of 10 percentage points compared to the present situation, these are clearly ambitious, yet attainable goals, the HGK said.
The HGK said it was important that the strategy provided for monitoring the implementation and fulfilment of indicators by the steering committee which will be in a position to amend sections of the strategy as necessary.
