We congratulate Croatia on becoming the 28th Member State of the European Union on 1 July 2013.
On 9 December 2011 Croatia and the EU signed the Accession Treaty and earlier this year, Croatian citizens elected their representatives at the European Parliament.
We would also like to congratulate Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanović and Croatian President Ivo Josipović on this special day.
We are looking forward to working with Croatia as an EU Member State and we thank them for their commitment to the European project.
