Slovenia as a market

The Trade Council in Zagreb can assist you with commercial cases in Slovenia.

Since 1991, Slovenia has been an independent democratic state with a parliamentary system. Despite being one of the smallest countries in Europe with a population of 2.1 million, Slovenia today is a developed country that enjoys prosperity and stability as well as a GDP per capita at 83% of the EU 28 average in 2016. 

Slovenia joined both the European Union and NATO in 2004, while it in 2007 joined the Eurozone. In 2010, it furthermore joined the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The country has a highly educated workforce, well-developed infrastructure, and is situated at a major transport crossroad. 

Slovenia's economy is highly dependent on foreign trade, with Germany, Austria, Italy, France and Croatia being its main trade partners within the EU. About two-thirds of the country's trade is done with other EU members. Keeping labour costs in line with productivity is a key challenge for Slovenia's economic well-being, to which Slovenian firms have responded by specializing in mid- to high-tech manufacturing. Industry and construction comprise about one quarter of the country's GDP.
