It has strong relationship with their clients, 24/7 involvement in projects and correlation of fees with direct financial benefits separates Instar from others in the market. As part of the Larive Group, Instar has the know-how of doing business in Croatia and the right contacts to guarantee a successful entrance into the market.
With the worldwide economic crisis, Croatia has been in a downturn for the past few years with investors interest decreasing slightly. 2013 the economy is expected to receive a boost from the fact that Croatia is entering the EU and is thereby gaining a new market with over 650 million consumers. Croatia has an excellent geographic and economic location acting as a link between the EU market and the ex-Yu region (that has been of high interest to foreign investors the last few years). The Government is trying to improve the country's business climate by passing new laws and regulations that will decrease the strain of bureaucracy when investing in Croatia.
Great investment opportunities are seen in the following sectors:
- Food industry
- Wood (abundant in natural resources)
- Healthcare (relatively low prices, highly educated workforce with lots of knowhow and expertise)
