Slovenia – Economic policy

Short-term priorities:

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Medium-term priorities:

  • regular examination of the joint assessment of the priorities of economic policy under the Europe Agreement, emphasising adherence to the Copenhagen criteria for membership of the European Union and Community legislation in economic and monetary policy (coordinating economic policies, introducing convergence programmes, fighting excessive deficits);
  • Slovenia will have to adopt policies for attaining real convergence according to the European Union’s objectives on economic and social cohesion and a nominal convergence compatible with the ultimate objective – adoption of the Euro. However, Slovenia will not be obliged to adopt the Euro immediately on accession.
