Great Britain Offers Five Million Pounds Support to Croatia 
At a press conference in Zagreb Wednesday European Integration 
Minister, Neven Mimica, and the Secretary for Southeast Europe 
at the Foreign Office, Denis MacShane, told reporters Great 
Britain wished to help Croatia in its approach to the EU and 
that five million pounds over a period of three years had been 
earmarked for the purpose. 
The money will be used for furthering the efficiency of the 
state administration in solving issues related to European integration, 
issues related the judiciary branch and internal affairs, especially 
the solution of problems such as crime, corruption, the development 
of a market economy, education, employment, the reform of the 
health and social welfare systems, refugee return, environment 
protection, agriculture and regional growth, the media and the 
coordination of a joint EU foreign and security policy. MacShane 
said he hoped the plan would encourage Croatia to continue with 
reforms, with the refugee return programme and with its cooperation 
with the ICTY. He also asked General Gotovina to appear before 
the Tribunal and thus remove the greatest obstacle to normal 
relations between Croatia and the EU. He also announced that 
“Croatia’s request for full-fledged EU membership might arrive 
earlier than expected”. Croatia officials have confirmed that 
Croatia might submit a request for EU membership as early as 2003.
