President's economic council to give recommendations by year's end

The Economic Affairs Council of President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic on Tuesday held a meeting to discuss how to encourage quality and sustainable exports and how to promote Croatia to investors, and it scheduled its next session for mid-December, after which it is set to outline concrete recommendations for enhancing Croatia's economy.

Earlier this year, the council held five meetings to discuss monetary and fiscal policies, administrative obstacles for doing business as well as vocational training in Croatia and some other topical issues, according to a press release issued by the President's Office.

The results of those discussions will be presented after the seventh meeting set for mid-December when the council is expected to give its recommendations for enhancing the national economy.
