“Slovenia’s central bank currently sees no significant economic slowdown in the European Union, deputy governor Primoz Dolenc told Reuters on Thursday.

‘For now it does not seem that the slowdown would be significant … its effect is relatively low and we do not expect it will have a significant impact on the (ECB) monetary policy,’ Dolenc said on the sidelines of a banking conference.

He said in a speech there was international uncertainty regarding Italian debt, protectionism and the policies of US President Donald Trump.” (Business Recorder)


“Hungary is no longer opposed to Croatia’s membership in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Croatia’s Večernji list reports today, stating that the Prime Ministers of Hungary and Croatia, Viktor Orban and Andrej Plenković, apparently paved the relations between the two countries. Orban will also arrive in Zagreb at the beginning of December, according to the newspaper.

Hungary opposed Croatia’s membership in the OECD because of its attitude towards the Hungarian energy company Mol or its leader Zsolt Hernadi. Relations between the two countries were also discussed in order to resolve the migrant crisis in the period of the Social Democrats government Zoran Milanović . Plenkovic and Orban, at the recent EPP congress in Helsinki, talked for more than an hour and, as the Zagreb daily suggests, resolved open issues.” (translated from Sio1)
