Slovenia is enjoying a fourth consecutive year of steady economic growth that has lifted wages and employment, although challenges still exist. This could briefly summarise the main message in the latest favourable IMF forecast for Slovenia. Higher consumption by households and also private investments are the main reasons for the improved prospects. Growth remains balanced, and conditions are improving. However, demographics and the slow growth of overall productivity could nevertheless constrain Slovenia’s future growth. Yet there is treatment for this: reform of the labour market which will take into account the ageing of the population, adjustment of the pension system and ensuring sustainable wages. The bottom line: we are on a good and right path, but at the same time we should not neglect reform.

The Government remains firmly committed to implementing reform, for the good of all, for a better tomorrow. Slovenia is indeed growing and achieving its most important targets. This includes through the project “Together We're Bigger”, in which by the middle of May, youngsters from all over Slovenia will create the biggest drawing in the world and submit it to Guinness World Records. According to the Prime Minister Miro Cerar, such projects, in which he identifies two important goals – connection and cooperation – can help us achieve big and important goals in life.
