The Chamber pays special attention to promotional activities through which the Croatian economy is represented in the respective country. Specifically, it informs business partners about the laws and regulations of the Republic of Croatia, as well as about possibilities and facilities for investment. The Chamber organises visits for numerous foreign business representatives. It arranges meetings and concrete business co-operation with business partners abroad. It plays an important role in the promotion of export-oriented activities of the Croatian economy at well-known, leading fairs and shows abroad.
As the chief promoter and organiser of their participation at fairs and exhibitions, the Croatian Chamber of Economy supports its members both organisationally and financially in developing a successful marketing approach to the respective market. This is possible thanks to the CCE’s links with chambers and economic institutions around the world, which enables Croatian companies to establish successful contacts with counterparts in the respective country or region. These activities are carried out in co-operation with county chambers, professional associations and other institutions. The Chamber assists in Croatia’s efforts to follow liberalisation trends in global trade in order to ensure fair competitive conditions for exports.
The Croatian Chamber of Economy participates in these processes actively and directly. Some of these activities include: Croatia’s membership to the WTO, which implies her further engagement in all activities related to trade liberalisation, conclusion of the negotiating process and signing of the Accession Treaty to the EU, Croatia’s membership to CEFTA and free trade negotiations with other countries.
With regard to multilateral co-operation, special attention is paid to the EU as the most important foreign trade partner, because full membership of this European integration is the main strategic goal of the Republic of Croatia.
Improvements to the Single European Market, EU’s trade policy, customs rules and regulations and their direct effects on Croatian exports are systematically studied.
The CCE takes part in the practical implementation of the Agreement on Trade in Textiles between the Republic of Croatia and the EU. It also participates in a series of regional initiatives, such as Central European and Adriatic-Ionian Initiatives, Alps-Adria Working Community and others. Through CroatiaPro Committee the CCE participates in work of Stability Pact and Southeast European Co-operative Initiative (SECI).
The international co-operation established through binational chambers with Croatian emigrants (particularly in South America), for whom special information materials on investment possibilities and regulations are prepared, is also of great importance.
