Formulation of strategic development priorities of the Republic of Croatia
Published: 23rd September 2014

As an EU Member State, Croatia is obliged to implement the Europe 2020 strategy. Moreover, it has recently decided to join the regional strategy SEE 2020, under which it has defined eleven headline targets, as ambitious as the targets set by other participating countries. As a participant in both EU strategic initiatives, Croatia has set itself sixteen headline targets and a number of reform measures and development priorities until 2020. While welcoming these processes, Croatia, regretfully, still lacks a uniform national development strategy. In the absence of an umbrella strategy document, three documents are currently in force, which, together with several economically relevant sectoral strategies, constitute the backbone of the next strategy cycle until 2020. You can read more on this topic in the Newsletter by Anto Bajo and Saša Ljepović Formulation of strategic development priorities of the Republic of Croatia.

The new Newsletter by Ivica Urban entitled Supports for households with children analyses child benefits, a portion of guaranteed minimum benefit intended for children and PIT personal tax allowance for children. The amounts of these supports to households  with children are functions of income. Once these functions are calculated for hypothetical households and their graphs plotted, interesting interdependencies, patterns and irregularities can be noticed in certain supports but also in the set of supports viewed as a whole. The key problem of this set of supports for children lies in the “stepwise” design of the child benefit which creates a situation where a minor change in income leads to major changes in the amount of the child benefit.
