Exploration and Analysis of Croatian Retail Market:

In addition, we will analyze potentials ofCroatian market for acceptance of Brazilian products, with the purpose of making implications for a retail strategy on Crotian market.

This will be done in form of a written survey. The results will becollected partially in person and partially via email. The research will include people of all ages and of all education backgrounds.
