One of the sectors of the European economy affecting the effective implementation of the Europe 2020 Strategy is the textile industry sector. In the current financial perspective, the European Union is making a significant contribution to maintaining its growth with the aim of creating opportunities for job creation. Croatia's accession to the European Union (EU) gave new perspectives for future economic and social development of the country. Full integration of the country is also conducive to generating new challenges, especially for economic entities operating in the Croatian textile sector. The aim of this paper is to examine the competitive position of the textile sector of the Croatian economy in the period 2005 – 2016. Preliminary analysis of the problem allowed to formulate the following research hypothesis: Croatia's accession to the European Union has a positive impact on improving the competitiveness of the Croatian textile sector in the context of implementation of the Europe 2020 Strategy.
