New opportunities, new partnerships

With the help of Slovenia’s diplomatic effort, the Slovenian business sector is determined to make inroads in the Gulf countries. This has been affirmed by the working visit of Prime Minister Miro Cerar, accompanied by a business delegation, to the United Arab Emirates. Slovenia and the United Arab Emirates have something in common. Slovenia’s economy seeks to establish itself as a regional force, and as a driver of regional business development. Similar is true of the UAE, as Minister of Public Administration Koprivnikar said on the visit, since they are seeking to become a regional leader and they have bold ambitions for the future.

Slovenia is therefore looking for partnerships. Economic partners with realistic ambitions. And we are seeking new opportunities for Slovenian companies abroad. Real opportunities are offered by participation at the Expo world fair, which will be hosted in 2020 by Dubai.

Prime Minister Miro Cerar takes the view that in this part of the world politics can make a significant contribution to opening the door to commerce and cooperation. Here it is principally political leaders, in other words governments, that open the door for business. And the prospect of new opportunities and partnerships will get a major boost with the embassy that Slovenia is set to open in the Gulf this year.
