Slovenia overview


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.
