Slovenia - the European crossroads

Europe is a vibrant market and Slovenia is ideally located in its centre, at the crossroads of the 5th and the 10th Pan-European corridor.

The country lies between the eastern Alps and the northern tip of Adriatic sea, which extends almost into the middle of the continent, thus providing the cheapest naval route from Far eastern markets to Central Europe. The well developed traffic infrastructure, Port of Koper and Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport form a perfect logistics gateway for Slovenia-based companies to the key European markets. Large commercial and industrial hubs like Vienna, Munich, Milan or Budapest are just a few hours drive away. The distance between Port of Koper and Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport is about 130 kilometres.

The country's highly skilled, multilingual labour force and export-oriented economy provide strong growth potential to foreign exporters and investors.
