Benefits of opening a company in Slovenia, EU – introducing Slovenia
Slovenia is a relatively new country, as it became independent in 1991. But it did not lose any time when it comes to economic development.
In 2004, Slovenia became a part of the European Union. Already in 2007 it became a part of the Schengen zone, which makes trading with other EU countries easier.
In 2007, Slovenia also started to use EURO as the currency – the same currency which most of the EU countries use as well.
Slovenian language is the official language but most people also speak other foreign languages as well. Most widespread is English, German, Italian and Croatian.
One of the biggest benefits of Slovenia is also its geographical location. It is a central European country, positioned next to the sea with access to international waters in the port in Koper. Its neighbors are Italy, Hungary, Croatia and Austria which are all major economic players in the European market. All of these benefits make it one of the most interesting countries to do business in Europe.
