What factors are positive?

Economic growth in recent years, the reduction of NET external debt in 2019 and balanced macroeconomic growth are among the positive indicators of further economic development. The productive capacity of the Slovenian economy is also maintained by the ECB’s monetary policy, which is a lever for the S&P Agency’s prediction that the Slovenian economy will recover towards the end of this year.

The Agency’s credit rating of S&P also includes the forecast that public debt will start falling again in 2021. The Agency also recognizes a stable and efficient institutional framework of the Republic of Slovenia.

The Agency estimates that fiscal policy in the country will mitigate the impact on the labor market and companies. They also estimate that the measures will reach the value of 5% of GDP in 2020. The price competitiveness of the economy will most likely remain.
