The Croatian telecoms market has been shaped by the country having joined the European Union in 2013, a process which resulted in market liberalisation and the creation of a regulatory environment conducive to competition.

The country exited the Excessive Deficit Procedure in July 2017, opening the way to membership of the Eurozone.
