Slovenia Faces Low Foreign Direct Investment Inflow
Ljubljana, 31 October - EU/SLOVENIA/INVESTMENT
The inflow of foreign direct investments (FDI) to Slovenia has been at a low level for several years. Slovene and foreign experts believe that the major obstacle to FDI is unfriendly business environment and its administrative hurdles. Director of the Office for Economic Promotion and Foreign Investments Matej Kovac is of the opinion that Slovenia could change its reputation regarding FDI with more offensive and transparent privatisation, and by clearing obstacles for investments, which means increasing the offer of building grounds for industry and the establishment of a credible system of irreversible FDI encouragement. If the country acts properly, the FDI inflow is likely to increase when Slovenia enters the EU, something that is demonstrated by experience of other countries, Kovac believes. Thus the FDI inflow is likely to grow from around one percent GDP to three percent GDP, Kovac predicted.
