Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic at the government session on Wednesday announced that the National Reform Programme would be presented to the cabinet at the next government session, and that it, along with a Convergence Plan will be handed over to the European Commission by the end of the month.
The reform plan is a quality one, Oreskovic said. Perhaps it may not be to some people's liking but I think that the programme is fair, that it is balanced and that it will be to the benefit of Croatian citizens.
This is the first time the plan was first presented to social partners, the prime minister underscored. During an open dialogue the government was given "good input" from them. The unions, he said, recommended additional reforms.
We have a lot of work and have to work together, Oreskovic underscored. He added that the government planned to send 238 laws in parliamentary procedure by the end of the year.
