Talent Pool & Education

Digital growth has accelerated over the past two years, with companies investing in talent development to stem the outflow of IT professionals in search of better opportunities elsewhere. A government-funded scholarship program for STEM studies has helped increase skills among young people aged 16-29 and the number of startups in Croatia is above the average for Central and Eastern Europe.


Croatian is the national language, while Serbian and Italian are recognised as minority languages. English skills are improving rapidly, especially in the main centers and within the business community.

Economic Outlook

Croatia has had a strong tourist season and inflation is expected to fall back to 3.6% in 2023, below the average among countries. In August, the European Commission approved a €9 billion investment deal to promote economic and social cohesion, and support green and digital transitions. The country’s fledgling tech ecosystem has plenty of room for expansion. Key players include Rimac Automobili, creator and manufacturer of Nevera, the world’s fastest electric hypercar, and Dok-Ing, a leader in robotics innovation, based in the capital Zagreb.

Political Conditions

Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic went to the polls early, campaigning on the government’s strong pandemic response, and the gamble paid off, with the 2020 election resulting in his conservative center-right party’s best showing in more than a decade. The Foreign Ministry has officially started negotiations to join the OECD, stating membership will recognise that Croatia is committed to “the values of democracy and the rule of law, and shares the common goal of sustainable economic growth”.
