Government Priorities

The new cabinet under Miro Cerar has given new impetus to Slovenia. Several years of economic crisis have revealed a number of social problems, which the new ministerial team will be forced to take on if it is to restore the country’s international reputation and economic strength.

On 16 January 2015, Slovenia submitted an action plan for the execution of the ECHR judgement concerning the foreign currency savings in Ljubljanska banka in former Yugoslavia.

 

With the commencement of oral proceedings before the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) , Slovenia and Croatia enter the final phase of resolving their territorial and maritime border dispute. The arbitral award should be final by 2015.

 

 

Cooperation, help and development for the Western Balkans regions is one of the central priorities of Slovenia’s foreign policy.
