By creating Banovina Croatia in 1939, the regime wanted to solve the Croatian question in Yugoslavia.

The Cvetković–Maček Agreement (Serbian: Споразум Цветковић-Мачек; Croatian: Sporazum Cvetković-Maček) was a political agreement on the internal divisions in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia which was settled on August 26, 1939 by Yugoslav prime minister Dragiša Cvetković and Vladko Maček, a Croat politician. The agreement established the Banovina of Croatia which was specifically intended to include as many ethnic Croats as possible, effectively creating a Croatian sub-state in Yugoslavia which Croat politicians lobbied for since the country was founded in 1918.
