The summer tourist season is slowly starting and with it the unemployment rate in Croatia is continuing to drop. New figures released by the State Statistics Office show that the unemployment rate dropped once again in March and now stands at 9.5 percent.
At the end of February, the rate was 10.2 percent meaning that an extra 8,600 people found work. At the end of March there were 1.38 million people in employment in Croatia, a 0.6 percent increase over the previous month. Undoubtedly the upcoming tourist season combined with the demographic issues that Croatia faces have meant that unemployment is again falling.
