Croatia is Open to All Forms Of Cooperation

Serbia and Croatia were until recently members of the same community, integral parts of a single country, while today they are the closest of neighbours, who have good cooperation in various fields because there is mutual willingness and scope for cooperation

We Can Do Better

Serbia and Croatia have the potential to work together better than has been the case to date, from joint investments to joint exports. On the global scale, our economies are both small, but through joint forces we can count on larger markets, simpler business start-ups on third markets and better references

Business is Like Water

It is easier for businesspeople than politicians to find common ground and remove obstacles, and they do so by identifying points of mutual interest and accentuating mutually beneficial things, profit and success. The principles and customs that rule the business world can certainly greatly contribute to political normalisation

While There Are Neighbours, There Will Be Open Issues

Croatia strives to help Serbia in its European integration process, and the issues highlighted in this process are important both for Serbia and for the whole process of building sustainable peace, security and reconciliation in this part of Europe. For them, the European framework is relevant, rather than the bilateral one

Businesspeople Speak the Language of Cooperation

Strengthening economic cooperation between Croatia and Serbia contributes to progress in the entire region, and withstands the challenges posed by occasional political disputes. The operations of members of the Croatian Business Club, in which colleagues share their experiences about the challenges of European integration and jointly participate in international programmes and initiatives, is a good example of constructive responses to transient tensions

A Small Country With a Rich Cultural Tradition

Traditional Croatian culture is characterised by exceptional diversity. Ecological conditions and the influences of the cultures with which the Croats have come into contact through history (Mediterranean, Central European, Ancient Balkan, Oriental, etc.), have resulted in the development of three specific regional cultures: Pannonian, Dinaric and Adriatic
