  • Tina Sommer

    (European Small Business Alliance)


This summary report represents the results of an effort to portray the business environment in Croatia from the view of Croatian small businesses. UMIS-SMEA, a national business organisation and ESBA, the European Small Business Alliance, a pan-European association, teamed up to examine the problems and barriers small firms experience in Croatiaa. The data presented was drawn from an online survey conducted over a five-week period in March/ April 2009 with 254 respondents, a number of Focus Groups interviewing 19 business owners from various industries, media and public bodies over a 2-day period, and visits to three selected companies in Zagreb and Krizevici.
