COUNTRY SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS

The European Commission every year in the European Semester process on the basis of National Reform Programme and Stability Programme adopts Country Specific Recommendations.

European Commission recommends that Slovenia take action in 2016 and 2017 to:

  1. Following the correction of the excessive deficit, achieve an annual fiscal adjustment of 0.6 % of GDP towards the medium-term budgetary objective in 2016 and in 2017. Set a medium-term budgetary objective that respects the requirements of the Stability and Growth Pact. Strengthen the fiscal framework by appointing an independent fiscal council and amending the Public Finance Act. Complete and implement the reform of the long-term care and healthcare systems, making them more cost-efficient to ensure long-term sustainability of accessible and quality care. By the end of 2017, adopt the necessary measures to ensure the long-term sustainability and adequacy of the pension system.
  2. In consultation with social partners, increase the employability of low-skilled and older workers, including through targeted lifelong learning and activation measures.
  3. Improve the financing conditions for creditworthy business, including by facilitating durable resolution of non- performing loans and access to alternative financing sources. Ensure the proper implementation of the bank asset management company strategy.
  4. Take measures to modernise public administration and reduce the administrative burden on business. Improve the governance and the performance of state-owned enterprises.
