Key developments and challenges

  • Slovenian industry is particularly impacted by excessive leverage and the inability to secure liquidity, even for working capital purposes, from a banking sector under strain. This is a key problem for domestically owned companies without foreign banking relationships, or those geared towards the domestic economy, from which earnings are much diminished.  

  • The new government has persevered with a reform programme. Given the credibility established through early reform implementation, and despite adverse judgements from international rating agencies, the government was able to issue bonds on international capital markets.
  • Measures have been taken to rehabilitate the banking sector. The establishment of a Bank Asset Management Company (BAMC), which can draw on international expertise, and the independent assessment of loan quality conducted in the summer of 2013, are important positive steps in this regard.
