Priorities of the Ministry

  • Developing agriculture and forestry, which will be more adapted to the effects of climate change and contribute to a permanent improvement in the condition of natural resources and bio-diversity.
  • Promoting contemporary agriculture, which will ensure the greatest possible level of self-sufficiency in food; the goal is to raise the level of self-sufficiency in food where it is lowest and where production and market potential exists.
  • Creating a stable and stimulating business environment in agriculture and related activities, including the accelerated transfer of innovation and good practice to the widest circle of users.
  • Promoting activities which permanently improve the competitiveness of Slovenian agriculture and strengthen integration and partnership among stakeholders in the food chain and timber supply chain.
  • Strengthening agricultural competitiveness in the long term and, consequently, reducing its vulnerability and dependence on subsidies in the production of healthy food at reasonable prices.
  • Implementing the precautionary principle in GMO-related issues.
  • Protecting agricultural land.
