    If your still under a delusion Serbia is going to join that looney bin called the EU then your off with the pixies.
    Serbiaís average wage is increasing every year and that will continue if outside the EU whereas Croatia is just going around in circles while your government tells you things are fantastic.
    NCR spent $92 million on a purpose-built building and thatís non-polluting then there is manufacturing of wiring and lighting facilities, Oracle in Kragujevac, chocolate manufacturer Barry Callebaut and all of these are non-polluting. Yes, there are some but what has Croatia got? SFA.
    When was the last time anyone opened anything in Croatia that would stop people leaving???? In the last 30 years no one. Croatia is waiting for money to fix the earthquake damage in December 2020, and the 2022 Christmas mass was held in tents in Zagreb because the churches are still in ruins.
    Yes, you have a happy new year too and watch as Croatia disappears into oblivion before your very eyes.

    Serbia will never join the EU. Look at how prosperous Croatia has become since joining it. About 70% of Croatia's annual budget derives from Brussels in one form or another. Look at how rich Croatia has been able to repair the earthquake damaged buildings in Zagreb. HRTV were showing mass being celebrated in tents next to earthquake damaged churches.

  3. sj sj they are not going to let Serbia in.
    It already has cheap labor in Serbia and it sends its polluting industries to Serbia.
    In the EU the polluting industries are regulated to death and Serbia welcomes them with open arms.
    You know with your vast knowledge sj beggars cant be choosers.
    Happy New Year< I hope it will be better one then last year.
    I really have my doubts.

    Croatian success. Started with 4.5 million today its 2.8 million and according to Croatian sources there are 1.2 million pensioners.
    If I am wrong please list who has invested in Croatia in the last say 20 years? Anyone? Anything?
    Has the non polluting NCR constructed a new building in Zagreb to house its staff? It did just that in Belgrade. Oracle is in Kragujevac in partnership with the university there. Swiss-based cocoa and chocolate products manufacturer Barry Callebaut is in Serbia. These are just a few but yes there are polluting industries such as Continental tyres but what's funny they also have factories in Germany.
    Lenny in less than 5 years no more Ustashland. All gone ha,ha.

  5. Itís not just Serbia but many others that have been in the EU for years. With the exception of a very few EU members, which benefit from this arrangement, the rest are there to serve them with cheap labour and skilled workers and university-trained specialists.
    Slovenia is a prime example which started with a population of over 2 million when it left Yugoslavia but today itís the same size as Belgrade. I'm not belittling Slovenia just point out the facts. Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria are the same.
