To mark the occasion, the Slovenian Government’s Communication Office compiled some of the most significant achievements of the young state. Did you know...

… that in 1991 Slovenia’s GDP per capita was EUR 5,000 and in 2015 it was over EUR 18,000?

 that life expectancy increased by more than six years since 1991?

 … that for 25 years Slovenia has had one of the best systems of parental leave and childbirth allowances? 

… that the procedure for establishing a company took 3 to 6 months in 1991, whereas it now takes only a day for a sole proprietor and a few days for a limited liability company ?

that in 1991, 350,000 theatre-goers were recorded in Slovenia, whereas in 2014 this number had doubled to 745,400?
