Croatia is looking to initiate the process to join the Eurozone, hoping to fulfill a commitment made under its EU accession agreement. Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Martina Dalić commented, “”The government, together with the Croatia National Bank (CNB), estimates that it is a good time to initiate proceedings in the Eurozone, which is the medium-term objective. It can not be done in the short time or overnight. CNB has produced an analysis of the costs and benefits of accession to the euro area and at the end of the month will begin public debate on the issue.” (Večernji)
