map Slovenia
Slovenia continues to perform well in crisis times. In 2023, real GDP will grow by 1.4%, supported by government spending on infrastructure and solid export performance. At 5.5%, inflation will remain high, but lower than the EU average. Unemployment will be at an all-time low for the second year in a row, while real wages will increase despite high inflation. The government has announced reforms in healthcare, pensions, public salaries and taxes, all of which come with long-term fiscal implications and will be a hot topic in 2023.
