Dear prospective investor,
Welcome to the official website of the Slovenian public agency responsible for foreign direct investment – InvestSlovenia.
Foreign direct investment (FDI) is equally important to Slovenia’s economic growth as it is for global GDP and jobs worldwide. Since I took over the helm of the Slovenian government in April 2013, we have been working on improving the environment to attract quality business to the country and, in turn, create new jobs.
Sound economic fundamentals, the absence of regulatory barriers and regulatory quality, ease of doing business and the rule of law are essential when it comes to building a strong-business friendly environment as a precondition to capturing growth-fuelling FDI investments. I am proud to say that Slovenia delivers on all counts. It has a healthy industrial base, well-developed infrastructure and educated, hardworking and talented people.
Investors are sensitive to the costs and conditions of doing business, so let me assure you that Slovenia stands out among those competing for inward investments. Its corporate tax rate of 17 per cent, tax allowances and incentive schemes designed to assist foreign investors should encourage companies that commit capital to strategic projects rather than to portfolio tactic.
The investment division of SPIRIT Slovenia brings together key officials, business executives and community leaders who are working toward the common goal of attracting FDI projects and fills gaps in specific information about the country and opportunities for foreign direct investment. InvestSlovenia’s role is vital to the economic development and success of long-term capital commitments and to active collaboration of all those dedicated to advancing FDI opportunities.
You and I know that for an investment to succeed takes time and perseverance. Serious investors run a marathon, not a sprint, while host countries have to implement deep systemic changes. In Slovenia, we are ready to go the extra mile to build a clear path of opportunity for foreign investors.
Facts and figures, investor stories and experiences over the past decades, and hints for the future provided on the InvestSlovenia internet will help you to benchmark the qualities of the country and its people against your requirements for a location to land your investment project .
