Digitalization has reached all industries in all sectors of society, as well as the lives of individual members of society. This Policy Note will focus on Croatia's development potential as well as on short-, medium-, and long-term policy options, after a thorough diagnostic of several thematic areas. It starts with a brief overview of global trends followed by an extensive overview of past development in Croatia. Further on, it deals in detail with the challenges and the development potential of Croatia. Next, policy recommendations are considered, followed by a discussion of cross-cutting implications and then by a proposed implementation roadmap. Finally, proposals for strategic projects are considered.
