Economic recovery in Croatia will be delayed by another year due to fiscal consolidation efforts. GDP growth should rebound only in 2015, provided investments pick up and external demand strengthens. Private consumption will remain suppressed due to high and persistent unemployment as well as household and enterprise deleveraging. Benefits of EU membership can be expected only in the medium run.
