Slovenia’s value proposition as a location for FDI
Since the late 1970s when the first foreign investors came to Slovenia, the skill base remains the country’s key attraction as an inward investment location. Skilled labour is available to a range of industries making Slovenia an easy location for investors to fill talent. Other advantages include adaptability of companies and of workforce, business legislation, investment incentives, 17 % corporate income tax rate and investment tax allowances. Foreign investors’ perception of Slovenia as a host for FDI is improving as gross value added per employee keeps increasing against a backdrop of the decreasing number of employees over the past few years. Manufacturing companies lead the way in generating the highest gross value added and among them large companies account for more gross value added than all other companies put together.
