Croatian recruitment target announced as accession preparations enter final lap

Vice-President Šefčovič meets Croatians working in Commission

The Commission has set its sights on recruiting 249 Croatian nationals as a result of Croatia's accession to the EU on 1 July 2013. The decision is part of a package of documents adopted today, to ensure that administrative aspects of the accession process go smoothly.

Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič said: "I am delighted that after years of negotiations, we are finally entering the final lap towards Croatian membership of the EU. I am sure Croatia will make an enormous contribution to European integration, and I hope many of its brightest and best talented citizens will be inspired to do exactly that by coming to work in the European Institutions".
