Interview With Zvonko Milas – Government Office For Croats Outside The Republic Of Croatia

    According to the assessment of many in the diaspora the Government Office for Croats outside the Republic of Croatia, which you have been leading for several months now as State Secretary, has not proven very effective under the former Social Democrat led government.

Quick – Croats Living Abroad Get Your Submission In For Government Grants

  Once again, I’m peeved off  at the Central Government Office For Croats Outside the Republic of Croatia as well as with the Croatian consular/diplomatic services around the world for failing miserably at properly informing those they are paid to serve (all the Croats living abroad) of important opportunities to be taken for the promotion […]

Croatia: Still Bypassing Diaspora In Correcting Mistakes Of Communism
