Slovene Culture in 1998
Ljubljana, 11 December - REVIEW/1998/CULTURE
The outgoing year has been important for art and culture in Slovenia in many ways: comparisons between Slovenia's legislation and the European acquis in Brussels stimulated reflections about Slovenia's future position in the united Europe as well as urged the preparation of the so-called protective laws, including those designed to protect national interests in the process of accession towards the EU in the field of culture. Further encouragement to culture was the idea behind the Culture Tolar Act, adopted on 17 March. Additional funds of SIT 23 Billion (US$ 144 million) to be raised by the act by 2003 will provide resources for the rehabilitation of most endangered and valuable buildings of cultural heritage, reorganisation of general libraries to adapt them to international standards, regulation of basic housing conditions for some major public cultural institutions and retaining amateur culture on the level of development achieved so far.
