Sažetak
Brain drain is a global problem that involves the migration of highly educated people who are looking for better living conditions abroad due to dissatisfaction with the situation in their home country. The Republic of Croatia was increasingly confronted with the above phenomenon primarily because of high unemployment rate and other unsatisfactory living conditions. The economic development of a country depends largely on its competitiveness ; moreover, a key factor to maintain and increase the competitiveness is the human capital. Long-term development of the economy of the Republic of Croatia depended largely on the quality and expertise of human resources, which entailed the fact that the investment in human resources, their professional development and encouragement of the implementation of measures for their stay in home country should have been highly positioned on the priority list of the Republic of Croatia. This scientific paper conducted an analysis and determined the relationship between competitiveness and brain drain, as well as stated measures and proposals for reducing the brain drain, which should consequently affect the increasing competitiveness of the Republic of Croatia. The research results suggested that the brain drain caused by dissatisfaction in the home country greatly affected the competitiveness of the Republic of Croatia diminishing its importance on global competitiveness ranking. These findings were confirmed by international experiences which indicated that it was necessary to continuously work to prevent emigration of highly educated professionals by giving them satisfactorily working conditions, opportunities for constant development and life in general in their home country.
