Structural Changes in Employment in Croatia


  • Boris Vujcic

    (Croatian National Bank and Faculty of Economics, Zagreb)


The aim of this paper is to to answer questions as to: how far is the Croatian labour market from its anticipated long-term structure; what is the speed of structural change; whether is it moving in the right direction; and what is Croatia’s position in relation to employment structure among other transition countries of Central and Eastern Europe. By taking the employment structure of the EU countries as a long-term target, author finds that Croatia is still a long way from that goal, and it is moving in the right direction at a considerable pace. Moreover, in comparison to other countries in transition, it appears that employment restructuring in Croatia measured by indices of speed, efficiency and job creation has been most successful during the past seven years of the transition process.
