Message from the Ambassador
With Croatia having achieved North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) membership in 2009 and joining the European Union (EU) in July 2013, the U.S. Embassy in Zagreb, Croatia, is increasingly focused on expanding trade and investment ties between the United States and Croatia. Our goal is for our excellent bilateral relations to be matched by equally robust bilateral trade and investment. We see increased potential in this area as a result of Croatia’s EU membership and as economic and business climate reforms are implemented.
The U.S. Embassy stands ready to assist U.S. companies exporting to Croatia and Croatian companies sourcing goods and services from the United States. We also support Croatian companies or individuals interested in investing in the United States, and assist existing and potential American investors in Croatia.
The Embassy’s U.S. Commercial Service office provides companies with information on the local business environment and market opportunities, assists with introductions to potential local partners, and facilitates interaction with Croatian government institutions when necessary. The U.S. Commercial Service also provides standardized matchmaking and promotional services that are tailored to individual client needs. These services are provided on a cost-recovery fee basis, and we measure the Embassy’s performance by the number and quality of success stories reported by the companies we assist.
I encourage you to learn more about how the Embassy could help you pursue business opportunities in Croatia or in the United States by checking our Getting Started pages or contacting our Commercial Section. We look forward to assisting your firm find opportunities in Croatia or the United States.
