It has been a year since the Government led by Alenka Bratušek started its mandate. Slovenia was in a very difficult situation at the time: it was gripped by the speculative financial markets, while an atmosphere of mistrust and instability pervaded the domestic political scene. But despite the many pessimistic forecasts, the past year was positive.


Slovenian Government approved a programme of measures aimed to combat the grey economy, which also foresees curbing undeclared employment, inspection campaigns, amendments to health-care legislation and damages for illegal building. Measures also tackle cash payments, duties and eliminating administrative barriers.
