“We believe that this move, which is in the spirit of our tradition and culture and is good for the nucleus of the Croatian society, and that is the family, and that is why we are going ahead with this proposal,” Plenković told reporters after the meeting. 

We are conducting intensive dialogue to support this proposal that is balanced and more appropriate than various proposals were in the past, he added, referring to the proposal for regulating work on Sunday.

Plenković underscored that the proposal banning Sunday trading except for 16 Sundays took account of Croatia as a tourist destination, economy, and consumer customs. On the other hand, it created a balance between working and private life.

The GSV discussed the action plan to implement the European pillar of social rights and the EU’s revised directives for regional grants.

“In the past fifteen months, with its timely, strong, and firm engagement, with the unavoidable and irreplaceable role of the state, Croatia has managed to save jobs. HRK 10.5 billion has been allocated for earnings for 680,000 workers and 120,000 employees, which helped them bridge over the crisis and for the total number of insurees to be higher than in 2020 and even in 2019,” said Plenković.

With the coronavirus epidemic waning, Croatia will move from the job-keeping phase to creating new jobs, he underscored.

Speaking about regional support, Plenković announced an increase as of 1 January 2022.

In the Pannonian area of Croatia and its north, grants for entrepreneurs will be increased from 25% to 50%, in Adriatic Croatia from 25% to 40%, and from 25% to 35% in Zagreb.

“It seems that all regions are winners, and the benefits to business subjects, businesses, and investors will be higher,” he underscored.
