This year will mark 25 years since Slovenia gained independence and sovereignty. We can be proud of what we have accomplished to varying degrees. After years of economic and financial crisis, poor management of banks and companies, and even the country, it is time to look to the future with optimism.

Our pride and optimism is based both on stable economic indicators and Slovenia’s increasingly improving international reputation. This year, the government will put all its efforts into positive shifts that translate into the everyday life of Slovenia’s people. After all, all measures have been taken to benefit the people, not to remain mere words on paper.

Every individual can help make this happen: by being optimistic, active citizens and constructively critical. The government is the first to do everything to make life in Slovenia pleasant, dignified and prosperous for everyone living here.
