Croatia Falling Behind in EUCroatia Falling Behind in EU

New data from the EU statistics agency, Eurostat, show that Croatia is falling behind the rest of the EU by almost all economic indices—while the outlook for 2017 is no better, Balkan Insight reported. Croatia’s unemployment rate of 16.6% in October falls way behind the EU average of 10%, for example. Balkan neighbors Bulgaria, with 11.1%, and Romania with 6.5% unemployed, are doing far better. The ex-Yugoslav republic of Slovenia, on 9.6%, and Hungary, with 7.4%, are also in a better situation in this sector.
