Croatia’s first woman president was sworn into office on Sunday, calling for national unity to help revive the country’s battered economy.

Conservative Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, 46, was addressing a gathering in Zagreb that was packed with flag-waving citizens and foreign visitors including Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic.

Grabar-Kitarovic won January’s presidential election as a candidate for the opposition HDZ party, pledging to prod the Social Democrat-led government into doing more for the economy, which has been in recession since 2009.
