Natko Vlahovic, CEO of Vlahovic Group, provided Washington’s Balkan Insider with a detailed assessment of Croatia’s new president Zoran Milanovic and what to expect in his 5-year term. Milanovic defeated the now-former president Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic in the runoff election and initiated a new momentum in the Croatian political arena.
Milanovic’s inauguration in February was a modest ceremony with a small audience, all according to his own wishes. This decision has once again proven Milanovic, also a former Prime Minister, is not an ordinary political figure. Therefore, his term is to be closely monitored as interesting novelties are expected in the upcoming 5 years.
Close attention should be given to Milanovic’s relations with the neighborhood, especially in his attitude towards Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Kosovo and North Macedonia. Moreover, Milanovic’s first foreign visit was with the Slovenian counterpart, Borut Pahor. Another interesting area to monitor will be the Three Seas Initiative, as Milanovic continuously showed a lack of enthusiasm for it, compared to his predecessor.
Also, Milanovic’s cabinet of advisors is a fair indication of his policy priorities, and this was tackled in Natko’s article as well.
