The end of an era for Zoran Milanovic.

At the last official meeting of the outgoing Croatian government, Prime Minister Zoran Milanović thanked all ministers and citizens who supported the activities of his government and said that all the achievements of the last four years clearly show that they were the government of the people and that the next government is left with a country which is in a much better shape than when they came to power in 2011, reports Jutarnji List on January 22, 2016.

He compared the situation in Croatia in 2011 with an airplane with an empty cockpit and out of control. “The lives of passengers were not threatened, but the flight was very turbulent and uncertain. We have returned the aircraft on its path, it is now at a cruising altitude and we have stopped the negative trends seen in 2009 and 2010. The country once again has an economic growth and all the parameters of success. All indicators are good”, said Milanović.

He added that one of the latest European Commission reports says that the index of business confidence and expectations and the business climate in Croatia is one of the best in Europe. “Croatia is now a better country”, said Milanović and thanked all those who supported the government.

Outgoing Minister of Regional Development and EU Funds Branko Grčić said that in the second part of its term the government has done a great job. “This can be seen every day and the beginning of the term of the next government will show our results. You can always do better, but with what has happened in the last two years, especially in the economy and with the implementation of certain reforms, I think we can be satisfied”, said Grčić.

He also commented on the fact that Prime Minister-designate Tihomir Orešković is in Kitzbuehel in Austria where he will talk with investors. “I expect that Mr. Orešković will have contacts with all the relevant investors who purchase Croatian government bonds”, said Grčić. “This is a job which should be done, but it is a continuous job”, noted Grčić.

The new Croatian government is expected to be confirmed on Friday, 22 January.
