Croatia joins EU after decade of negotiations

A Croatian man celebrates the accession of Croatia to the European Union at Ban Jelačić Square in Zagreb on June 30, 2013.

The European Union gets its first new member in six years, but it's something less than a celebration. Croatia, the 28th member of the EU, will be the first new entrant since the euro-crisis.

The BBC's Guy De Launey joins Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio from Croatia's capital, Zagreb, to discuss.
