Slovenia Weekly: Ensure the safety of people

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Robert Golob and his ministers visited the Koroška region, which was worst affected by the August storm, where they met with mayors, business representatives, entrepreneurs and others. He announced the setting up of a disaster relief base in Črna na Koroškem. It will guide post-flood reconstruction measures and focus on damaged municipal infrastructure. Ahead of the coming autumn rains, the Government's priority is to clean up watercourses and riverbeds, and to ensure the safety of people who have lost their homes in the floods. During his visit, the Prime Minister reiterated that people are not and will not be left alone, as individual solutions to the problems of the most affected families will be put into action.

The Government has adopted draft state budgets for the next two years, which focus on finance measures to deal with the aftermath of the August floods. This will lead to a billion euro increase in planned expenditure next year, and Slovenia will try to justify its higher budget deficit in Brussels.

This is also harvest time in Slovenian vineyards. Slovenians are proud of their rich tradition of viticulture. Late summer and early autumn are the best time for wine growers to harvest the fruits of their labour. The traditional grape-picking events are also an opportunity for socialising, networking and preserving Slovenia's cultural heritage, as is presented in the article below.
