Latest News from Slovenia
For our last edition of the decade, we open up with a column by Goran Novaković, CEO of the Slovenian Business Club, who contemplates whether the Slovenian society has enough enterprise and whether we are ambitious enough to become enterprising. This is precisely what this edition of The Slovenia Times is all about.
Slovenian Interior Ministry data shows there are 335 Slovenian citizens in Venezuela, whereas the total number of people of Slovenian descent is estimated at 1,000.
Slovenian citizenship is not a condition for repatriation, which entails a special status and rights for 15 months, but Slovenian origin is.
The overall number of people in a job in the country increased by half a percent from September and by 1.8% since October 2018, according to a report from the Statistics Office.
Roughly 10% of those having a job (92,885) were self-employed. Their number fell by 1.6% year-on-year. The number of other people in employment rose by 2.2% in the same time to 808,400.
Slovenia scored 53.8 points, and fared best in terms of governance efficiency, trailing only Ireland and the Czech Republic.
Governance efficiency measures the results of core state areas and investments - infrastructure, market and employment structure, and the provision of a framework for sustained and sustainable wealth generation.
