The Ljubljana Stock Exchange (LJSE) was amazed at the response of major investors in London, where the stock exchange and six blue chips put on a roadshow. "Considering that this was the first such presentation abroad, the results are very encouraging," LJSE chairman Marko Simoneti said on Friday, 25 November.

Simoneti said that about 50 major asset management firms called in at the roadshow and there were 40 one-to-one meetings between the Slovenian blue chips and the investors.

The roadshow include drug maker Krka, household appliance group Gorenje, retailer Mercator, hardware trader Merkur, seaport operator Luka Koper and food company Droga Kolinska.

Finance Minister Andrej Bajuk and Joze P. Damijan, the head of the government's reform committee, were also on hand, outlining the macroeconomic prospects of Slovenia, new economic reforms and privatisation plans.

Simoneti told STA the government's presentation suggested that the Slovenian market was opening up, that foreign portfolio investors were welcome and that the LJSE was willing to meet their demands regarding trading and reporting.
