jubljana, May 7 (STA) - The government has faced a number of problems: a wage freeze, passing the budget, privatization and numerous affairs. These problems were harder to deal with than the government had expected three months ago, when it came to power, said Prime Minister Drnovšek at a press conference during which he presented the government's achievements of the last 100 days in the commercial and social, as well as in domestic and foreign affairs sectors.***

In the foreign affairs sector, Drnovšek interpreted Slovenia's admission into the International Monetary Fund as a success which added to Slovenia's good reputation in the world, as well as offering help to Slovenian companies. He also expects Slovenia to be capable of a similar "leap forward" next year, provided of course that the economic policies do not fail, that the Slovenian currency remains stable and that there are no social disorders. As an important issue, Drnovšek cited the accelerated solving of the problems with neighboring Croatia, especially regarding the definition of borders. He announced a meeting of the Slovenian and Croatian prime ministers in June, when they will discuss the position of the border between the two countries.
