EGTC implementation in Croatia near future

Following the accession of Croatia into EU on 1 July 2013, legal
preconditions must be ensured for setting up of EGTC-s in which regional
and local authorities could participate.

As the EGTC Regulation is not yet implemented in Croatia, there are no
existing EGTC-s yet.

The issue of the EGTC Regulation implementation is recently raised on a
national level. New meetings are planned.

Also we will need to accommodate national law according to new
requirements of the new regulation related to EGTC for the period 20142020.
