• The Slovenian government put forward the draft general government budgets for 2020 and 2021 today. The draft budgets follow the fiscal rule that requires the gradual balancing of state budgetary revenues and expenditure without further indebtedness. Expenditures of EUR 10.35 billion are planned in the next year, which is 1.9% higher than set out in the revised budget for 2019, while revenues are planned to rise by 4.5% to just under EUR 10.82 billion.

  • The first year of the current government’s term of office is ending with stable and strong public support.

On the anniversary of the election of the government, we are aware of the responsibility that such support entails, and we are once again committed to working in the interest of Slovenia and all of its inhabitants.
