Croatia Travel & Tourism Sector Discussed by Timetric in New Report Published at

31 Jan 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The world economic crisis and perpetuated eurozone debt crisis posed a major challenge to Croatia’s tourism industry during 2008–2012. However, a slow but steady positive growth in tourist volumes followed the most severe years of the recession. The travel and tourism sector plays an essential role in the Croatian economic development, accounting for over 30% of the domestic total employment as of 2012. In the same year, the travel and tourism industry contributed almost 28% to the Croatian GDP. This has encouraged the national government to focus more on stimulating the industry growth and improving the tourism infrastructure in the country. Croatia’s entry in the EU on July 1, 2013, opened up new opportunities for tourism development.

The country has responded to the world demand for cruise tourism by developing its ports; this resulted in an increase in cruise ships arriving at the local ports at the end of 2013. Constantly rising operational costs, intense competition and low profit margins have made it difficult for airline firms to operate profitably in very tough market conditions. A noticeable upsurge in the demand for overseas property has been seen recently, with masses of foreigners purchasing holiday homes in Croatia and then renting those out during holiday time.
