3. Employment & Entrepreneurship

Croatia is one of countries with highest youth unemployment rates in Europe which has been the main social challenge for a long time alongside precarious work and the increasing number of young people who opted for (long) lasting leave abroad.

The Ministry of Labour and Pension System (MLPS) carries out administrative and coordinating tasks related to employment programmes. The main partner of MLPS in the implementation of policies for employment and entrepreneurship at the level of the Government of the Republic of Croatia is the Ministry of Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts (MEEC).
