Today in Washington, D.C., U.S. Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment Jose W. Fernandez and Croatian Minister of Finance Marko Primorac signed a comprehensive treaty for the avoidance of double taxation between the United States and Croatia.

A long-term and shared goal for the two countries, this treaty, subject to advice and consent to ratification by the U.S. Senate and by the Croatian Parliament, will help both Americans and Croatians avoid double taxation.  Avoiding double taxation will enable Croatian firms to engage in the U.S. market more fluidly, enhancing U.S.-Croatia economic cooperation and bolstering private-sector innovation between the countries.
