Weekly Review of the Slovene Economy from 2 to 8 December
Ljubljana, 10 December - Slovenia is expected to record a 4.25-percent economic growth this year, while the average annual inflation rate should stand at 8.9 percent, according to the government Office for Macroeconomic Analyses and Development. The Office believes that macroeconomic indices next year will depend largely on the wage policy, which was last week presented to the Economic and Social Council by Minister of Labour, Family and Social Affairs Vlado Dimovski. The government decided to raise the excise duties on petrol, whereby the prices of petrol are to remain intact. Last week was also marked by the question what to do with animal waste, which exceeds the capacity of Slovene incineration plants.

The competent ministries were tasked to prepare a plan how to solve the issue.
