“Labour Minister Marko Pavic said on Tuesday that the government will spend 2.5 billion kuna on various employment programmes this year, adding that the amount is larger than what any other previous government had spent for the same purpose.

“Never in the history of Croatia has more money been allocated for employment, because this year we are investing 2.5 billion (337 million) kuna in employment programmes, including 1.6 billion kuna (216 million) for active policy measures, and 900 million kuna (121 million) for specialised programmes,” Pavic said in the southern city of Split, where he presented the government’s active employment policy measures to local employers.” (N1)
