The Finnish Sustainable Growth Programme for the Transport Sector continues to seek new market opportunities together with Team Finland and ITS Finland. The next opportunity window we will open is the Croatian RRF market. Why Croatia?

Croatian economy is expected to grow by 6.4% in 2022 and by 1.4% in 2023. Croatia is the biggest recipient of EU’s Recovery and Resilience Facility funds (RFF) compared to the size of its economy. This creates interesting business opportunities for Finnish companies as well. The right time to look at these opportunities is now: in the beginning of 2023, Croatia has joined both the Euro and Schengen area. €727 million is available for the development of a competitive energy-sustainable and efficient transportation system: data driven logistics, rail network modernization, maritime & port modernization, urban mobility & ITS and payment systems.
