Ljubljana, 10 April (STA) - The government adopted on Thursday a package of measures aimed at boosting economic growth and creating jobs in 2014 and 2015. The measures are divided in ten sets, of which some are already being carried out, the government said in a press release.
The measures are to help deleverage companies, provide easier access to funding and support exports, as well as improve Slovenia's business environment and continue the privatisation process, the government said in a press release.
The government also wants to boost R&D and attract investors, as well as fight shadow economy, said the press release, adding that the government will also lay the foundation for measures for the EU's 2014-2020 financial framework.
Economic Development and Technology Minister Metod Dragonja told the press after the government session that the programme does not include concrete goals for measures, for example job creation.
"If 30,000 jobs are created by the end of 2015, this will be a big success," said Dragonja.
He added that the package of measures, which are being drafted for the period until the end of 2015, is tied to the term of the incumbent government.
