The government ratified the EU’s “own resources decision”, the legal basis to allow drawing post-Covid recovery funds. In 2021-2027, Slovenia should be able to tap on EUR 1.6 billion in grants and up to EUR 3.6 billion in loans.

The draft national recovery and resilience plan is to be debated by the parliamentary EU Affairs Committee behind closed doors tomorrow. The government is expected to adopt it after the legal basis is adopted at EU level, which should happen in February.
