The European Commission appointed Jerneja Jug Jerše as the new head of its Representation in Slovenia, and she will assume her duties in Ljubljana on 16 April.

Jug Jerše succeeds Zoran Stančič, who completed his five-year term as head of the European Commission Representation in Slovenia at the end of last year. In the interim period the office is being run by Nataša Goršek Mencin as acting head. The Commission said Jug Jerše, who has worked in the directorates-general for internal market and for economic and financial affairs, “will be able to draw on her strong policy background and expertise, in particular in economics, in her new function”.
