THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO LAND YOUR INVESTMENT IN SLOVENIA
Most foreign investors are attracted by Slovenia’s strategic position at the heart of Europe, its excellent transport and ITC infrastructure, its value chains, industry clusters and centres of excellence. Investors keen on locating their operations at the heart of the market with 500 million consumers will find Slovenia’s international commercial contacts and the land-sea-air transport system ideal.
A corporate culture of transparency and accountability, observance of international technical standards, personal integrity and company loyalty make a foreign manager’s job easy ever since the first big international companies established their operations in Slovenia. Investor confidence thrives on legal and institutional reforms designed to facilitate investment. Staring a company is straightforward and easy through single-access points to register a limited liability company, obtain a construction permit and carry out any other administrative procedures.
Slovenia as a potential host country has balanced class forces, class-based economic disputes are rare and wages are very reasonable for the level of education and skills of the local workforce.
Competitive advantages of Slovenia:
For investors seeking to buy into state-owned enterprises, timing is perfect as the government is preparing to dispose of its stakes under the sovereign holding law. The process of selling assets will be transparent and investors will have only one entity to talk to.
