In Slovenia we focus on:

Boosting competitiveness and good governance by championing privatisations, while deploying cutting-edge instruments to support private companies. We will support the expansion of competitive and well-governed companies. We aim to deepen capital markets and strengthen financial system.

Supporting Green Economy Transition by promoting new green technologies. Our goal is to Improve energy and resource efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
Slovenia is one of the most advanced countries within the EBRD regions. The country is highly competitive and has many vibrant small businesses, but there remains room for improvement in innovation, governance and energy intensity.

While the economy has registered steady growth in recent years, the medium-term outlook will depend on the continuation of structural reforms. Reviving private sector productivity growth is key to the further convergence of the Slovenian economy.

The EBRD country strategy for Slovenia is also aligned with the government’s Slovenia Development Strategy 2030 especially in the areas of privatisation, corporate governance, capital market development, green economy, innovation and entrepreneurship.

As well as being a country where the EBRD works, Slovenia is also an EBRD donor with a total contribution of 1.5 million.

The EBRD’s latest strategy for Slovenia was adopted on 13 February 2019

Current EBRD forecast for Slovenia’s real GDP growth in 2022 4.0%

The Covid-19 pandemic significantly affected Slovenia’s economy in 2020, with GDP declining by 5.5 per cent. The key channels for disruption were private consumption and investment, which declined by a severe 9.7 per cent and 4.1 per cent, respectively. Private consumption was largely correlated with the spikes in Covid-19 infections, as the decline of 17.2 per cent year-on-year in the second quarter of 2020 was followed by an almost full recovery in the third quarter, only for
consumption to again decline by a significant 14.4 per cent year-on-year in the fourth quarter.
