Croatian exporters are the representative body of companies and organizations whose mission is to promote and represent the interests of Croatian exports. The association of Croatian exporters is a non-profit, non-partisan and non-governmental organization, which is independent in its work and cannot be subordinated to any external authority. Membership in the association is open to all legal parties and individuals in Croatia that are exporting or are intending to export products, goods and services.

Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development (HBOR) has an important role in Croatian banking system. HBOR is established and owned by Republic of Croatia and ti plays the role of a development and export bank established with the objective of financing the reconstruction and development of the Croatian economy. Main activities of HBOR are related to financing the reconstruction and development of Croatian economy, financing infrastructure, promoting exports, supporting the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, promoting environmental protection and insuring the exports of Croatian goods and services from non-marketable risks. Since the Croatian private insurance market currently does not offer sufficient insurance for all marketable risks, HBOR can, on the basis of the “exemption clause” approved by the Croatian Competition Agency, provide insurance also for a portion of those risks that are not covered in the private markets. In this way, HBOR supplements the existing market offer in line with the European Commission regulations.
