Introduction

The Slovene lands were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the latter's dissolution at the end of World War I. In 1918, the Slovenes joined the Serbs and Croats in forming a new multinational state, which was named Yugoslavia in 1929. After World War II, Slovenia became a republic of the renewed Yugoslavia, which though Communist, distanced itself from Moscow's rule. Dissatisfied with the exercise of power by the majority Serbs, the Slovenes succeeded in establishing their independence in 1991 after a short 10-day war. Historical ties to Western Europe, a strong economy, and a stable democracy have assisted in Slovenia's transformation to a modern state. Slovenia acceded to both NATO and the EU in the spring of 2004; it joined the eurozone in 2007.

Indicateurs macroéconomiques

Economic growth is projected to slow in 2016 owing to sluggish global trade and temporarily weaker public investment as EU-financed projects slow down. Growth will pick up in 2017 as a strengthening labour market boosts private consumption, and improved financial conditions and stronger balance sheets of companies enhance private investment. Inflation will remain low due to remaining slack in the economy. Unemployment will fall over the projection period.

Continued corporate, and especially SME, restructuring and a reduction of non-performing loans remain priorities to revive credit flows. Continued fiscal effort is needed to tackle the still rising public debt, while the incomes of the poorest need to be protected. Structural reforms to pensions, education and health care could boost growth and bring savings without jeopardising service quality.

Productivity could be boosted by lowering regulatory burdens and implementing the privatisation programme. These reforms would also help stimulate more foreign direct investment, improve corporate governance, attract new technologies and raise innovative activity. Lowering the high tax wedge on labour income could boost employment, especially of the high-skilled.
