Cooperation between the U.K. and Slovenia is in great shape, are according to Sophie Honey, the British Ambassador of Slovenia. Political ties between the two countries are strong, economic relations are excellent and trade has been slowly increasing ever since Slovenia gained its independence in 1991.
Despite Brexit bringing some uncertainties and changes, this will not undermine the good relations formed between British and Slovenian companies in the past and those that will be in the future. It is here that knowledge, innovation and development are more significant than the potential new legal framework resulting from Brexit. Slovenian businesspeople also appreciate the loyalty of British consumers, which takes a while to build, and has earned results in long-term cooperation, which is something often pointed out by Slovenian business managers.
There are already a few British investments in Slovenia, but we’d like to see many more since Slovenia requires foreign investments in almost all spheres of the economy. Maybe this investment will be recognized as an opportunity by those British partners who until now have not focused on Slovenia. We present a few of these opportunities in this magazine.
