Natko Vlahovic, CEO of Vlahovic Group LLC, provided an in-depth analysis for Washington’s Balkan Insider. He delivered a detailed look at the EU enlargement policy, from the perspective of Croatia’s Council of the EU Presidency. Croatia took over the rotating 6-month presidency on January 1st and the EU-Western Balkans Summit, planned for May, gives hope to end the stalemate for Croatia’s WB6 neighbors.
Last October saw North Macedonia’s and Albania’s accession aspirations being blocked by Emmanuel Macron, which came as a shock to their political elites. However, Macron’s interest lies somewhere else, and that is the Conference on the Future of Europe, which is spearheaded by Croatia’s own, Dubravka Suica. Being the European Commission’s VP for Democracy and Demography, Suica is crucial to organizing the Conference.
Croatian PM Andrej Plenkovic met with Macron recently, opening discussions on these two important topics. Plenkovic has high hopes for the EU-Western Balkans Summit in Zagreb and Macron has high hopes for the Conference on the Future of Europe.
