Unemployment is at a record low, Slovenian companies are facing staff shortages. Meanwhile, we have many talented Slovenians studying or working in the UK and other European countries. There they are gaining invaluable knowledge and experience that could help Slovenia to develop and prosper socially and economically. What could we do to attract talented Slovenians back home? What can the state do? And what can businesses do? We are organising an event in London together with the Slovenian Government Office for Slovenians Abroad
