Ljubljana, 6 January - s it seems that this goal - set for 1994 - will already have been realised in 1993. Although one per cent of growth is a drop in the ocean to an economy which has recorded extremely severe decreases in production over the past few years, writes the daily, it is at least a sign that the situation is looking up. The daily goes on to list several pieces of data that give reason to expect livelier economic development than the government anticipates. The prediction of low economic growth is an ace which the government is keeping up its sleeve in order to be able to reduce directly the pressure of public consumption on economy in the event of an upturn in production, writes Večer. With unemployment at the 130,000 landmark, this may well sound like a fairy tale, yet all in all there is welcome news in the fact that conditions have at least been created which give Slovenia the chance to climb out of the recession that hit it after independence, concludes Večer.
