What should be on the priority list of the new government?


How do Slovenian companies stay competitive with the global players? Our answer is added value in terms of technology. As the driver of the concepts of Industry 4.0 and digitalisation in Slovenia, the German-Slovene Chamber of Commerce and Industry encourages both Slovene and German companies to become familiar with the two concepts and see best practice examples from both countries. Thorough various training (Industry 4.0 for SMEs, Export Manager, etc.), panel discussions and delegations to Germany, we help our members gain first-hand insight into the two principles and become more digitally oriented, whilst still keeping the human in focus.

Our latest survey shows that Slovenia ranks first among the CEE countries in terms of attractiveness for investments by companies with German capital. Nevertheless, in comparison with the competition, Slovenia is still limited by its labour legislation and high rate of income taxation. In order to ensure a stimulating economic environment that will satisfy Slovene exporters and major foreign investors, the new government has to reduce bureaucratic obstacles and reduce labour taxation.
