Finance Minister Zdravko Marić informed the cabinet that in the last month, the competent agencies had itemized a total of 118 laws and regulations which should be amended within the national plan for the adoption of the euro.
The time frame for Croatia’s admission to the euro area in 2023 thus entails the amending of the necessary legislation until 15 July 2022.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković recalled that three days ago, the European Commission Executive Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis, who attended the 11th meeting of the national council for the introduction of the euro as Croatia’s official currency, strongly supported the work and ambitions of the government and other Croatian institutions to join the euro area.
Last Thursday the Irish Finance Minister and Eurogroup President, Paschal Donohoe visited Zagreb and said that Croatia had made important and positive progress on the road to euro area membership.
