2018 POLICY ISSUES 

1. Health Tourism

  • Development of health tourism in Croatia is based on private sector initiatives and Government support is needed to fulfill the potential of this competitive industry

2. Labor Market & Tourism - Tax Framework

  • Well-functioning labor market and conditions providing a competitive business environment are essential for attracting new investments in tourism. Current conditions regarding the labor market and the availability of workforce are not sustainable. Specific and structured measures and changes to regulations are needed to improve the situation and this requires (among other things) re-thinking the tax framework, to ultimately make Croatia a more attractive country for investing in tourism

3. Labor Market & Tourism - Labor Regulations Framework

  • Croatia is facing a shortage of available labor force for the Tourism sector, as well as a significant mismatch between available skills and qualifications and market requirements
  • Labor market measures are necessary to bridge this gap, to counter the negative effects of seasonality on human resource availability and retention, and improve the attractiveness of the tourism industry as a potential long-term career opportunity
