Internationalisation and Foreign Direct Investment

Slovenia boasts a surprising number of internationally renowned brands and names like household appliances producer Gorenje, motor homes producer Adria Mobil, ski manufacturer Elan, skier Tina Maze, composer and musician Slavko Avsenik and his Oberkreiner ensemble etc. Some of the world known products such as the 35 mm slide frame, the perfume atomizer, alpine carving skis, the first hybrid boat and the best selling Talking Friends smart phone application were created in Slovenia.

Slovenia is a traditionally export-driven economy. The Slovenian education system meets the highest standards and produces a highly qualified and diverse workforce. Advanced technological solutions, ongoing investments in R&D, highest quality production processes, spirited innovation and widespread ecological awareness in the greenest of Europe's natural environments are firmly integrated in the development and production strategies of an increasingly wide array of ambitious, forward-looking Slovenian companies.

If you are searching for a supplier or planning to set up or relocate an export business, choosing Slovenia could be the best decision you ever made. Slovenia offers a supportive environment for emerging businesses looking to thrive internationally through its technically-savvy workforce and pro-business infrastructure. Slovenia’s appeal is not a low-cost manufacturing but the reputation of its technology- and innovation-driven industries.
