This paper will give a comprehensive framework of the current Sino-Croatian economic relations. It will be primarily contextualised by Croatia’s status as the newest EU member-state and by its membership in the China + 16 framework for political, cultural and economic cooperation. Taking stock of this new institutional framework is essential in order to understand both the potential and the limitations to Sino-Croatian economic relations. Therefore, we will address this issue by nesting Croatian foreign economic policy within three hierarchical layers: the layer of Croatian membership in the EU, the layer of the China + 16 framework and, finally, the layer of the bilateral relationship between the Republic of Croatia and the PRC. This reality is also confirmed by the recent statement by Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the President of the Republic of Croatia.
