Weekly review of Slovene economy from August 9 to 15
Ljubljana, 15 August - The hot "energy" summer continues. In a session on 12 August, the Croatian government said the Slovene government regulation of 30 July to transform the Krsko N-Plant into a public enterprise was a unilateral act reducing the room for negotiations and forcing Croatia to consider international arbitration, but it nevertheless underlined the value of negotiations as the best possible way of resolving outstanding issues. Thus, a date is to be agreed next week for a meeting where Krsko is to be discussed by foreign along with economics ministers of both countries. Another source of agitation was a 90-minute power supply reduction in parts of Ljubljana and the region of Dolenjsko on 11 August, which according to the national energy provider ELES was not related to the Slovene-Croatian dispute over Krsko.
