The launch of this Economic Survey takes place against the backdrop of the Coronavirus pandemic. In Slovenia, the pandemic created a health crisis that was dealt with effectively by the health sector and the government’s confinement measures. The pandemic also halted one of the best economic performances in the OECD, leading to a slump, as in other countries.
When Slovenia became an OECD member, the world was gripped by a profound international financial crisis. This was followed closely by a domestic financial crisis in Slovenia. However, the country bounced back and rapidly became a star performer in the OECD.
Mr. Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the OECD, commemorated Slovenia’s 10 year anniversary as a Member of the OECD alongside Mr. Janez Janša, Prime Minister of Slovenia. The Secretary-General then presented the 2020 OECD Economic Survey of Slovenia.
The Secretary-General will then present the 2020 OECD Economic Survey of Slovenia, alongside Messrs. Andrej Šircelj, Minister of Finance, Tomaž Gantar, Minister of Health and Janez Cigler Kralj, Minister of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, Slovenia.
