About This Report


BMI View: In ----, Slovenia s freight sector will witness strong growth across the board as the improved economic outlook for the eurozone will stimulate demand for Slovenian exports and improved domestic consumption will drive a recovery in imports. Air and road freight will post the strongest growth rates, at -.- and -.- respectively, as they will benefit directly from rising import levels. ...On the back of stronger than expected eurozone growth and the recovery in domestic consumption, we forecast Slovenia s imports and exports to grow by good -.- and -.- respectively over ----.
