Croatian gov't presenting possibilities for EU funds absorption

The government and relevant ministries will promote possibilities for the absorption and use of European Union funds in March and April under the slogan "Let's Get EU Funds Together", and the first presentation will be held in Zagreb on Tuesday.

Over 80 billion kuna has been put at Croatia's disposal in the 2014-2020 financial period from European Union structural and investment funds.

The government intends to use those funds to boost the economy and reduce poverty risks as well as to achieve a balanced development of all areas of the country, government spokesman Nikola Jelic told Hina on Monday.

The event on Tuesday will involve Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic, Minister of Regional Development and EU Funds Branko Grcic, and a few more cabinet ministers.

Presentations will be organised in Osijek, Rijeka, Split and Varazdin to acquaint entrepreneurs, notably SMEs, with possibilities of obtaining EU funding.

Topics will include investment in rural development and agriculture, sustainable development, environment, employment, cultural heritage and social infrastructure, according to Jelic.
