ZAGREB – Finally, unanimity

The government has adopted the second round of economic measures designed to ease the burden that the private sector is experiencing amid the coronavirus pandemic. Croatian PM Andrej Plenković announced that his cabinet has decided to postpone the procurement of combat jets for the time being.

“At this moment, this is the only logical and correct decision,” he said, adding that Croatia will notify all the other countries which are participating in the tender process about its decision.

The parliamentary opposition announced its support for the government’s economic measures, assessing the second proposal to be better than the previous one.

“These measures are more concrete and were finally heading in the right direction. The government has adopted a lot of the proposals put forward by the Social Democratic Party and the opposition,” said MP Peđa Grbin (SDP, S&D).

The Bridge party leader, Božo Petrov, expressed content as the government had also adopted some of his party’s proposals.

Glas (RE) president Anka Mrak Taritaš believes that the proposed measures are positive, and announced her party’s support for “everything good and reasonable”.
