Overview About International Trade in Slovenia

Main Industry Sectors

During the last few years, agriculture has declined considerably reaching only 2.5% of  the GDP (in relation to 4.2% in 1995).

The industrial sector represents about one third of the GDP. Historically, the dominant industries in Slovenia were forestry, textile and metallurgical. After the 1980's, the mechanical industries (automobile, tool machines) and the high value-added industries (electronics, pharmacy, chemicals) have been greatly developed.

The Slovenian economy is becoming more and more based on services. This sector, which represents more than 60% of the GDP, has experienced a strong growth during the last ten years, especially in the fields of information technology and communication, financial and commercial services, tourism and retail business.
