EU information for citizens

The European Union originated from the co-operation between 6 countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and Netherlands) that began in the 1950s. It was officially founded in 1993, and today it is the biggest political and trading co-operation in Europe.

The EU counts 27 member states so far, spreads over 4 million square kilometres, and has a population of over 502 million people. Through the widening cycles, the EU strives to truly unite the whole of Europe.

The accession of our country into this above-national community is set for July 1st 2013.

The membership brings a number of significant and positive changes for our country: we become equal participants in the world’s largest economy, people mobility is enhanced i. e. young Croatians get the same employment opportunities like the rest other young European citizens, our market is opened to foreign investments, and what is most important in this context, Croatia is able to receive financial means from the EU structural funds that will contribute to equal development of Croatian regions, agronomy and fishing modernization, environmental protection, infrastructure advancement and more quality education.
