Throughout the 21st century, the EU has welcomed new member states bot individually and in groups. For example, in 2007, Romania joined the EU, which gave access to increased resources and infrastructure. On July 1, 2013, Croatia became the 28th country to join the European Union. Most of the population supported EU accession of Croatia, however there was dissent among Eurosceptics.
