    Prime Minister Cerar hosts Macedonian Prime Minister Zaev on official visit

    13.11.2017 -

    The Prime Minister of Slovenia, Dr Miro Cerar, is hosting the Prime Minister of Macedonia, Zoran Zaev, who is on an official visit to Slovenia. The two agreed that relations between the two countries are very good and amicable, not only politically and professionally but also personally. The main topics of the discussion included Macedonia’s progress towards Euro-Atlantic integrations, economic cooperation, Slovenia’s development assistance to Macedonia, and cooperation between the two countries during the recent migrant crisis.



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.


Slovenia and Croatia signed on 4 November 2009 an arbitration agreement establishing an arbitral tribunal tasked with issuing a final award on the land and maritime boundary on the basis of all the relevant facts. This ruling will be final and binding on both countries.
