The Slovenian and Serbian governments held a joint government session on the first day of February. This was the fourth meeting of the two governments since 2013. The purpose of the meeting was to review the implementation of already adopted agreements, address open questions in bilateral relations between the two countries and consider ways to deepen cooperation between the Slovenian and Serbian governments in various fields. Above all, the visit represents a continuation of regular and intensive high-level political dialogue and a continuation of the practice of joint meetings between the two governments.

Serbia remains Slovenia's most important trading partner in SE Europe and is at the same time a significant destination for Slovenian investment. More than 1,500 Slovenian businesses are registered in Serbia – more than in any other country – and Serbia is the second biggest recipient of direct investment from Slovenia.

Cooperation between the two countries is already good – extensive, dynamic and well-established – in almost all sectors. The continuation of regular dialogue, cooperation and the support which Slovenia is actively showing Serbia on its European journey remain key elements for even more comprehensive mutual relations and, at the same time, represent a new impetus for the further strengthening of cooperation between the two countries.
