In the new Newsletter entitled EU grants to Croatian counties, cities and municipalities, 2011-14 Katarina Ott, Mihaela Bronić and Branko Stanić provide information on the grants received by Croatian counties, cities and municipalities as holders or partners in the implementation of the programs and projects (co)financed by the EU in the period 2011-14. Also available is a downloadable database in Excel for further, more detailed analysis by readers. Despite the growing use of EU grants, the amounts used are relatively modest and it is astonishing that as much as 85% of the municipalities and more than half of the cities have never used grants.
In new Fiscus entitled The restructuring and privatisation of the shipyards in Croatia Anto Bajo, Marko Primorac and Martin Hanich explain the main characteristics of the processes in which the shipyards have been restructured, of the liabilities that the state has assumed pursuant to restructuring contracts and the sale of their shares and the liabilities and responsibilities that the new owners have taken on.
To mark the 40th anniversary of the publication of the journal Financial Theory and Practice as well as of the change of its name to Public Sector Economics, the Institute of Public Finance is delighted to host the conference Public Sector Economics (October 14-15, 2016, Zagreb, Croatia). We seek contributions on the role and functioning of the public sector at macroeconomic, sectoral and microeconomic levels in both advanced and emerging market economies. We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy relevant papers bearing on the state of public sector and of fiscal policies in today’s economic environment, characterized by fiscal consolidation pressures and widespread concerns about income and wealth distribution. Detailed information, including the Call for papers, is available at the conference web site.
