Majority of Slovenians optimistic about EU's future, poll shows


According to the survey, Slovenians are two points above the EU average in their optimism about the future of the bloc, while their trust in the EU is average at 42%. On average, optimism gained six percentage points since the autumn.

Labelling terrorism (56%), immigration (45%) and the economy (16%) as the biggest challenges for the bloc, Slovenians are more concerned about terrorism and immigration than EU citizens on average, with the share of those concerned about the economy close to the EU average.

Terrorism is considered the biggest challenge in 21 member states, which is quite a jump from the autumn, when it was labelled the biggest challenge in only one country.

Moreover, only a third of Slovenians (34%) expressed optimism about the country's economy, well below the EU average of 46%.

The Eurobarometer survey was conducted between 20 and 30 May and included 33,180 people from EU members and candidates.
