Croatia joins the European Union

July 2013

On 1 July 2013 Croatia became the 28th member of the EU, after more than eight years from applying for full membership (2003) and after having acceded to the treaties back in December 2011. Boris Babić, senior Partner in Babic & Partners law firm commented for Chambers & Partners: “I think it is great moment and we all hope it will foster and bring benefits to the economy.” He adds that there is still work to be done and that Croatia will continue to make reforms, but it is “a good signal to the business community and will improve stability in the region.”
