With its strategic position, having a tradition of cross roads for different routes has resulted in a modern & developed infrastructure both in terms of roads, railways and harbour. Furthermore, Slovenia is home to many well-known companies such as Elan, Gorenje and Seaway sailing boats.
Slovenia is a bit of an unknown country in Europe, living in the shadows of its closest neighbouring countries Austria, Italy, Hungary & Croatia. Due to its strategic position, the small country, home to two million people, has a modern and well-developed infrastructure, offering both routes on roads, railway and seaway. The Port of Koper is one important multipurpose hub having the role as the gateway for the cargo between Asia and Middle East to Europe, not the least due to its operating largest car terminals in the Mediterranean area. Other major economic sectors in Slovenia are food industry, electronics, automotive, machining & metal processing, chemicals & tourism.
Although being a relatively small and unknown country in Europe, Slovenia has a lot to offer business wise. The country offers long tradition of production value chains, industry clusters and centres of excellence, not the least in manufacturing industry. Other advantages include adaptability, mobility & flexibility due to its small size & investment incentives with relatively low corporate income tax rates.
