Although Slovenia’s economy was hit hard by the pandemic and will decline by 6.7% in 2020, this is a significant revision upwards from the previous forecast. A combination of fiscal measures, improving domestic and foreign demand, and stable corporate and bank finances give grounds for cautious optimism for recovery, which will be gradual and uneven. However, much will depend on the global epidemiological situation in the coming months, as well as on the strength of export demand from Slovenia’s major trading partners.
