Slovenia marks 10th anniversary of OECD membership

BRDO PRI KRANJU – An event at Brdo estate marked the 10th anniversary of Slovenia’s membership of the OECD with Foreign Minister Anže Logar saying that joining the organisation offered the country an opportunity for new development achievements.

Just like it managed to overcome the global financial crisis by way of structural reform, following the OECD’s guidance, Logar said the government was aware that wise measures would be needed again to exit the current crisis. OECD Secretary-General Jose Angel Gurria, addressing the event by video call, said he was confident Slovenia would exit the current crisis stronger as well. Gurria also had a video call with PM Janez Janša, who is in Brussels for the EU summit. The pair discussed Slovenia’s demographic challenge as highlighted in the OECD’s latest Slovenia survey, preparations for Slovenia’s EU presidency as well as digital economy and proposals for how to tax it. They also exchanged views on other topical European issues.
