3. Employment & Entrepreneurship

Last update: 1 March 2023

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, Pension System, Family and Social Policy (MLPSFSP) carries out administrative and coordinating tasks related to employment programmes. The main partner of MLPSFSP in the implementation of policies for employment and entrepreneurship at the level of the Government of the Republic of Croatia is the The Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development.
