Investment environment in Slovenia


Austrian companies are the largest foreign investor in Slovenia. At approximately EUR 3.5 billion, their investments represent as much as 25.6 % of all foreign direct investment. Currently, there are more than 1,000 companies with majority Austrian capital in Slovenia, employing approximately 20,000 people in nearly all industry and service sectors. Every year at ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Ljubljana, we conduct a survey on the topic of the current economic climate in Slovenia. Representatives of Austrian subsidiaries in Slovenia have expressed their views on the state of the Slovenian economy and their business outlook. The results of the survey are very positive and encouraging: more than 90 % of Austrian companies believe that Slovenia will remain an attractive investment location in 2019. More than half of respondents predict that their revenues will further increase next year. Austrian companies are also highly satisfied with the quality, education and motivation of the labour force in Slovenia. The tax burden on companies, inefficiency of the labour law and low availability of labour remain the critical points of the Slovenian investment environment.
