#ECB to test five Croatian banks as country aims for euro entry

| August 8, 2019

The European Central Bank said on Wednesday (7 August) it would carry out a stress test of five Croatian banks, a preliminary step in Zagreb’s bid to join the eurozone,
writes Francesco Canepa.

Zagrebačka banka, Privredna banka Zagreb, Erste & Steiermärkische Bank, OTP banka Hrvatska and Hrvatska poštanska banka will all be tested, with results expected in May 2020, the ECB added.

Croatia last month submitted a formal bid to join the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM-2), an early stage on the path to membership of the euro currency.
