Slovenia as a market

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

Slovenia is both an EU and NATO member since 2004, and has been part of the Eurozone since 2007. In 2010, it furthermore joined the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. The country has a highly educated workforce, well-developed infrastructure, and is situated at a major transport crossroad. Despite being one of the smallest countries in Europe with a population of 2.1 million, Slovenia enjoys prosperity and stability as well as a GDP per capita at 23.165 EUR in 2019 which is close to the EU-28 average.

Slovenia's economy is highly dependent on foreign trade, with Germany, Austria, Italy, France and Croatia being its main trade partners within the EU. Slovenia generates about 70% of total exports and more than 60% of total trade with the EU member states. Industry amounts to about one quarter of the country's GDP. The transition of the industry to production of medium- and high-tech technological products was needed to keep labour costs in line with productivity. These include automotive products, machining, building materials, robotics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, electronic devices, composite materials etc. In this sectors Slovenia offers many opportunities for greenfield and brownfield investments.
