image of OECD Investment Policy Reviews: Croatia 2019

This review was prepared in response to Croatia's 2015 request to adhere to the Declaration on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises. It assesses the climate for domestic and foreign investment in Croatia, its ability to comply with the principles of openness, transparency and non-discrimination and its policy convergence with the OECD Declaration, including responsible business conduct practices, and discusses the challenges and opportunities faced by the government of Croatia in its reform efforts. Capitalising on the OECD Policy Framework for Investment, this review includes chapters on foreign investment trends and performance, foreign investor entry and operations, the legal and institutional framework for investment protection, investment promotion and facilitation, public governance, and policies to promote and enable responsible business conduct.



Investment trends and sustainable growth in Croatia

This chapter reviews investment trends in Croatia. It provides information on the evolution of inward and outward FDI flows and stocks and compares Croatia’s performance to other similar countries. It also provides information on the relative importance of greenfield FDI and mergers and acquisitions. The country has performed relatively strongly in attracting foreign investment, but there is need to diversify FDI by destination sector, source country and mode of entry as well as support further internationalisation of domestic firms.
