Croatia remains bogged down in recession for the sixth consecutive year. Fiscal consolidation and the overly indebted enterprise sector are the key obstacles to growth. Household consumption remains depressed owing to high and persistent unemployment and continuing deleveraging. Economic recovery will depend primarily on external demand, a revival of private sector investment and increased absorption of EU funds.
