What will be the focus of bilateral relations in 2019
In 2019, AmCham Slovenia would like to see an even stronger transatlantic relationship. Transatlantic relations are extremely important and productive relations as they create some 25 million jobs on both sides of the Atlantic. They are good and despite their slightly different perspectives, the European Union and the USA are natural allies. We also believe that relations between Slovenia and the US are of key importance for our country. The US respects Slovenia as a proactive country and both political and economic relations between the two countries are good. We also believe that, as far as the transatlantic relationship goes, the business sector's voice should be stronger. It should speak up and change its way of thinking, it should focus on how the economy helps create jobs and how innovation and marketing contribute to prosperity, and thus make the transatlantic relationship even stronger.
