Milan, 15 June (STA) - The Public Agency for Entrepreneurship and Foreign Investments (JAPTI) was conferred the International Country Award 2011 for its presentation of Slovenia at this year's EIRE real estate fair in the Italian city of Milan.
Slovenia's showroom featured four investment projects this year - the Hotel at the former Vrtojba border crossing with Italy, the Komenda Business Zone, the Tobacna City complex in Ljubljana and the SiPark theme park.
Slovenian Ambassador to Italy Iztok Mirosic presented Slovenia's logistics potentials, including the railways infrastructure, the importance of the Koper port and the Ljubljana airport and the development of the country's business and industrial zones.
Matej Skocir of JAPTI believes that Slovenia's new exhibition stall presented Slovenia in a more noticeable and recognisable way, while also promoting the InvestSlovenia trademark and enabling visual presentations of investment projects.
The EIRE, considered the leading fair of its kind in the Mediterranean, took place for the seventh time this year with more than 500 exhibitors from 50 countries on an exhibition area of 35,000 square metres.
JAPTI said it would continue presenting interesting investment projects at specialised fairs abroad, including the Expo Real fair in Munich, Germany.
