Slovenia could avert a bailout in 2013 but will have to continue the restructuring of its banking and corporate sectors to create the basis for sustainable growth. In addition, further fiscal consolidation can be expected. Owing to corporate deleveraging and dampened household consumption as a consequence of rising unemployment, the economy will remain in recession in 2014 and should rebound only in 2015.
