Promotion of Slovenia and national brand I feel Slovenia
Promotion of Slovenia
In Slovenia, all the colours of the cultural and biological diversity of the Alps, the Mediterranean Sea, the Pannonian Plain, and the Karst merge into a "Slovenian green", which represents both the pristine nature of the country and the zeal of the Slovenian people to preserve it in this state. Greenness is the foundation of the country brand "I feel Slovenia", which represents our country both at home and around the world.
Slovenia's brand: I feel Slovenia
“I feel Slovenia” is Slovenia’s country brand. Slovenia uses it to present itself at home and abroad and to strengthen its visibility, position, reputation and influence in the international arena.
In the second half of 2021, Slovenia will hold the Presidency of the Council of the EU for the second time. We have already started the preparations for this very demanding project, as we have to ensure in a timely manner that all security, technical and logistics requirements for the organisation of meetings in Slovenia are fulfilled, along with designing activities for the promotion of Slovenia.
Under the auspices of the international community, five countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia – today Serbia) signed the Agreement on Succession Issues by which it was conclusively confirmed that five sovereign equal successor states were formed upon the dissolution of the former SFRY.
As Slovenia and Croatia had not managed to resolve their dispute concerning the border on land and sea despite numerous attempts, on 4 November 2009 they, with the assistance of the European Commission, signed the Arbitration Agreement establishing an Arbitral Tribunal.
On 29 March 2017, the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland began the process of leaving the European Union. Following this, the Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union was negotiated. If the United Kingdom adopts the Withdrawal Agreement, the 21-month transitional period will take effect. If the Withdrawal Agreement is not adopted, the 21-month transition period will not take effect, which means that on 1 February 2020, there would be no transition period and EU laws would stop applying to the UK immediately.
