Weekly Review of the Slovene Economy between 20 and 26 April
Ljubljana, 28 April - The top business news in Slovenia last week involved two government-related projects, namely the privatisation of the second-largest Slovene bank and the flotation of the Slovene telco on the stock exchange. The government thus decided on Thursday to suspend the privatisation of the NKBM which is Slovenia's second-largest bank with a 11.7 percent market share.
