Written by  The Dubrovnik Times Oct 27, 2021

President Zoran Milanovic said on Wednesday that the adoption of the euro would be more positive than negative for Croatia and that Malta could help it with its experience in the eurozone.

Malta has been in the eurozone since January 1, 2008, and Milanovic, who met with his Maltese counterpart George Vell today, believes the country can help Croatia with its experience.

"This is a country that has been inside for a long time, that has experience and that experience is good," the President said, adding that the Maltese economy, has points of contact with the Croatian economy, namely the tourist industry.

"Unfortunately, our economy, is not very export-oriented, we are also a service economy and that is one of the reasons why I think that the euro will be more good than bad for Croatia," said Milanovic.

The Croatian President also called on Malta to support the entry of the youngest EU member into the Schengen area.

Romania and Bulgaria, EU members since 2007, are also waiting for the green light to enter the area.
