The unemployment rate across the whole of Croatia is continuing to fall with latest figures showing that the number of people out of work is 114,498. This means that the rate of unemployment in Croatia is down 14.6 percent on the year.
And whilst this figures may look promising a few factors have to be taken into account, firstly the large number of people employed in seasonal jobs on the Croatian coastline in tourism, and secondly the hundreds of thousands of people who have left the country in search of a brighter future in other EU member states.
In fact, the rate of unemployment grew slightly in August, and this was the second consecutive month that this trend has occurred. Although overall throughout the entire year the figures are positive.
