Slovenia’s economy returned to growth in 2014 after two years of contraction. The rebound has been driven by rising external demand and a revival in investment activities supported by EU funds. GDP growth in 2015 and 2016 will weaken once again on account of lower investments. Exports and the gradual recovery of household consumption will remain the main engines of growth.
