ZAGREB, September 19, 2019 – During a discussion on the report which he submitted to the national legislature on Croatia’s participation in the European Council’s recent meetings, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said on Wedneday evening that the country was ready for Brexit.
“We have adopted necessary laws to get Croatia prepared for Brexit,” said the premier.
All relevant agencies and services have full information, and the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry provides Croatian citizens with all necessary information on this topic.
The available information is in the section “Brexit – General Information” on the ministry’s website.
“For the Republic of Croatia, it is vital to preserve the rights of Croatian citizens in the UK, as well as the UK citizens in Croatia, and provide them with clarity regarding their future status. In case of a no deal-scenario, the UK leaving the EU without the agreement, the Croatian Government is currently undertaking all measures necessary for establishing the conditions of reciprocity in order to minimize the effect of withdrawal on citizens and business activities. The condition of reciprocity means that Croatian citizens in the UK would enjoy the same rights as the UK citizens in Croatia,” the ministry says, noting that there are two possible scenarios of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU: orderly withdrawal of the UK from the EU, and disorderly withdrawal (“no-deal” Brexit).
