Croatia elects centre-left government

In English on 2011/12/09 at 14:40

The new centre-left government, including liberals and regionalists, will have to contend with a disastrous economic legacy, with national debt soaring to Italian or Belgian levels, unemployment nudging 20% and a depressed national mood.

Later this week, Croatia will sign its EU membership treaty, before joining in July 2013. The hope is that EU membership will trigger an influx of funds and foreign investment. Croatia is likely to be the last country to join the EU for at least a decade.
