Sectors in focus

The services remain the most significant sector in the Slovenian economy. Services represent 56.5% of the GDP and employ 61.7% of the total workforce. In the last years, strong growth is visible especially in the fields of information and communications technology (ICT), financial and commercial services, retail business and tourism, which contributed 12% to the Slovenian GDP before the Covid-19 crisis.

Breakdown of the economic activity of the sectors from the latest available data shows that in 2019, Slovenian industry contributed a total of 23.2% to the value added of the economy and one-third of employment, which ranks Slovenia third in the EU-27, after Ireland and the Czech Republic. The EU-27 average is 16.7%.

The agricultural sector represents only 2.0% of the GDP. It employs 5,1% of the population. Forestry is a key economic factor, with 66% of land area forested.

The fall in GDP in 2020 by 5.5% is a little lower than expected. The economic impact of the epidemic is concentrated mainly on the service sector and less on activities integrated into industry and international trade.
