Slovenia Attempting Recovery
Slovenia gained its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991 and went on to be the most successful republic of what used to be Yugoslavia. The country has made continual progress and has been developing a market economy, while still remaining slightly cautious in their manner of growth.
The changes to the economy were introduced within a relatively short amount of time after independence was won. Much of the change went towards giving the country a healthy economic growth rate. The economy has since benefitted from these reforms and from their acceptance of liberal trade. The liberal trade follows various laws and regulations and this has brought forth many rewarding enterprises.
The people of Slovenia are a big contributing factor to their success. These people are very educated and the work force is quite productive. There have been slight declines in the growth within the last several years but the government is making efforts to change this.
Slovenia is very dependent on its foreign trade and almost three quarters of this trade is with the European Union. They have great trade relations with Germany, Austria, Italy, and France. They have even penetrated the markets of Eastern Europe in the countries that used to belong to the Soviet Union.
This dependence, although has worked to make them successful, left them open to high levels of risk because of varying economic conditions. Right now, the largest obstacle is the exporting situation with Germany but there are already measures being taken to overcome this. The results of these efforts should be noticed later in 2011.
Aside from exports, Slovenia is also concentrating on its energy sources, and how to rebuild this sector to be more productive. They are becoming more dependent on imports of energy but this may be changing in the future.
With the economy of Slovenia already having been successful in the past, the locals and the government are looking forward to seeing the results of the proposed changes.
