In the time of competitiveness, circular economy is a way to change economic growth pattern and achieve the
balance among economy, resources and environments. World trends show that circular economy is an excellent way to create jobs and thus increase economic growth. This paper argues that increasing resource efficiency through growth in circular economy can help address structural mismatch in labour market in Croatia. Therefore, circular economy is a very complex issue, involving resource extraction, transportation, production, consumption, distribution, waste management, social norms, biological and technological cycles etc. For developing of circular economy is necessary to explore the theory of circular economy and possible practical implementation, but to drive broader changes it is critical to collect and share data, spread best practice,
invest in innovation and encourage consumers with adequate green product information. The purpose of the each country is to investigate basic principles and nature of circular economy, problems for the transition to a circular economy and to propose relevant policies, possible solutions and constructive mechanism of promoting circular economy. Taking into account what economic activities encompass the circular economy, it simply represents a necessity for every society and its well-being. So there’s a reasonable chance that a growing circular economy in Macedonia and Croatia will offer opportunities for arange of occupationsacross Western Balkan countries.
