Croatia’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan, a summary of which was presented at a government meeting on Thursday, envisages projects worth HRK 49.08 billion (€6.5 billion) to cover six key areas.

Presenting the document to his cabinet, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said that its adoption was a precondition for eligibility to obtain €6.3 billion in grants from the EU’s Reconstruction and Resilience Facility. 

“The purpose of the plan is to facilitate the government’s reform efforts as well as public and private investments and the GDP growth,” the Plenković said. 

Of that amount, 54% is intended for projects in the enterprise sector, 15% for education, science and research, 12% for the reconstruction of buildings, 10% for public administration and judiciary, 5% for healthcare, and 4% for labour and social welfare.

The document will be put on the parliament’s agenda in mid-April.
