Annual Plan of Work
Foreign capital and investment are crucial to Slovenia’s growth in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and its success in increasing exports. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) boosts the economic activity and productive capacity of a country, directly influencing the GDP. It encourages economic growth, job creation, technological progress, and raises the living standards for the population.
FDI is crucial for a country's GDP because of several factors: Capital Inflow, Job Creation, Technology Sharing, Increased Production and Output, Export Growth, Multiplier Effect, Higher Tax Revenue, Broadening of the Economy and more.
The United Kingdom is ranked no. 6 in Slovenia’s FDI.
We're setting up the Investors' Council to boost foreign direct investment from the UK to Slovenia and to continue supporting both current foreign and domestic investors.
Slovenia boasts a skilled and well-educated workforce, with high proficiency in English. To become more attractive to foreign and domestic investors, other issues must be addressed, such as:
- political and social stability,
- efficient, transparent regulations, and reduced bureaucracy,
- an attractive tax environment, especially income tax for a talented workforce,
- investment Incentives and benefits,
- strong infrastructure and connectivity,
- minimal corruption and enhanced transparency, especially in public procurement.
