Regardless of the approaching government holiday, the Slovenian Government is still active in numerous areas. Preparations for implementation of the arbitration ruling, which defined the border between Slovenia and Croatia, are in full swing. “We will do everything on our part that we need to do in preparation for implementation. We have six months to do this, and at the right moments we will take the right actions, those that we may and can take,” confirmed Prime Minister Miro Cerar.

The Minister of the Economy, Zdravko Počivalšek, took the view that the arbitration dispute would have a minimal impact on economic cooperation between Slovenia and Croatia, and pointed out that economic cooperation between the two countries is good, but there always remains room for progress.

And enhanced cooperation in the economic area is something to which the foreign ministers of Slovenia and Belarus are committed, after confirming the good relations between the two countries. Good relations in the area of forestry between Slovenia and China have also been confirmed at the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food.

So even during the holiday, the Slovenian Government will not be completely inactive. It will continue preparations for implementation of the arbitration ruling and construction of the 2nd railway track, it will be planning further measures for improvements in the areas of science, education and healthcare, and will also focus on measures to improve the status of young people, on digital development, environmental protection and so on.

The Slovenia Weekly team will also be going on an active holiday, so we invite you to resume reading our newsletter on 1 September 2017.
