Economy - overview:
Slovenia has always been a prosperous country, even before the disintegration of Yugoslavia that began in 1991. Its fertile land, strategic location and educated workforce have helped keep the GDP per capita substantially higher than that of other transitional economies of central Europe. It became the first 2004 entrant to the European Union to adopt the Euro.

Since gaining independence, Slovenia was doing very well, with inflation steadily decelerating. The country, however, was affected by the 2008-2009 recession, seeing the economy contract for the first time in 15 years and unemployment is now estimated to be at around 6.7% (2009). All eyes are on this new EU member state to see how it copes, but economists predict with its stable economic history it will weather the storm well
