National Competitiveness Council


The National Competitiveness Council was founded at the beginning of 2002 on the initiative of the private business sector and the Croatian Employers' Association. Its formation was supported by a decision of the Government of the Republic of Croatia.

The aim of the National Competitiveness Council (NCC) is continuous promotion and stimulation of growth of the competitiveness and productivity of the Croatian economy, which will, in the long-run, result in continuous sustainable growth of living standards in Croatia. The Council achieves this by supporting development policies, laws and other socially important processes that have an impact on creating and raising the competitiveness of the Croatian economy. In order to achieve this goal, the Council focuses on:

  1. encouraging dialogue between the public and the private sector;
  2. increasing the level of awareness and knowledge regarding the importance of the competitiveness and the productivity of the Croatian economy;
  3. developing a consensus regarding the main economic issues that Croatia faces;
  4. identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the Croatian economy, as well as their causes;
  5. recommending policies to increase Croatian competitiveness.
  6. monitors and evaluates implementation of reforms crucial for improving Croatian competitiveness.
