Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Oct 2, 2020 – Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Friday that today, the second day of their summit, EU leaders would talk about economic issues and preparations for absorbing Recovery Plan and Next Generation EU funds.

“Today’s debate will be economic in nature, how to strengthen the common market in the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll also talk about how all governments, through joint effort, can prepare their reform and resilience programmes so that the relevance of investment and reform funding comes to about 37% for the green transition and 20% for the digital transformation,” Plenkovic told the press in Brussels.

The Croatian government too is investing efforts in that direction, he added. “The Croatian government’s activities in the months and years ahead will be in line with that, following the work of this European Commission also via the seven-year budget.”

Plenkovic will leave the summit earlier to meet US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Dubrovnik.
