Croatia will preserve its shipbuilding industry, we will continue building big ships, with somewhat lower gross registered tonnage, Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said while commenting on today's decisions.
Over the last 50 to 60 years, Croatian shipyards have been owned by the state that has been responsible for all their losses and poor business performance. This cannot be so any longer, things must change, and we have no more time to lose, Milanovic said.
We have negotiated with the EU only what we could. This is a reality. The previous government and negotiators were limited by some real frameworks and they could do nothing else, the premier said.
