Slovenia Business Week no. 48/2004: Parliament Unanimously For Slovenia's EU Presidency for 2008

Despite hesitations over financial costs and staff requirements for such a major project, deputy groups were unanimous in their support for the proposal for Slovenia to be part of the troika making up the EU presidency between 2007 and mid 2008. Moreover, all 71 MPs present at the session voted for the proposal.

In a debate preceding the vote (71:0), the promotion and the political weight Slovenia would gain through the presidency were highlighted as the main arguments that prevailed over the high costs of this project.
