Slovenia Business Week no. 33: D&B Finds Government Strategic Plans Ambitious

In its August report, D&B maintains Slovenia's risk rating at DB2c, the highest in Eastern Europe

The world's leading rating firm has assessed the government Strategy for Slovenia's Development in its latest report, saying that development strategy targets, such as catching up with the average development level of the enlarged EU, are highly ambitious.  

Nevertheless, Dun&Bradstreet finds smaller goals, such as average real GDP growth of around 4% in 2006 and 2007, to be attainable and realistic.

In its August report, D&B maintains Slovenia's risk rating at DB2c, the highest in Eastern Europe. Moreover, the rating still bears a growth mark.

All macroeconomic projections remain the same as the month before, with the rating firm making a special mention of the increase in exports due to increased demand for Slovenian-made goods and services from France, Italy, the UK and Croatia.
