Recently the region of Pomurje in Slovenia won 4 coveted awards from the Financial Time’s FDI Magazine’s investment in Europe competition. This was held in two categories: the first being overall competitiveness, and the second being the regional foreign direct investment attraction strategies. These awards were held for the purpose of recognising the most competitive European regions in terms of their efforts to offer an attractive business climate for domestic and foreign companies. These awards are also evidence that our approach towards the attraction and support for foreign investments is one of the best in Europe.
So what are the main reasons behind the success of the Pomurje region? Well, first and foremost it is the fact that Slovenia as a country offers the right mix of qualities for foreign investors. These qualities include the quality of workforce, infrastructure, links to regional markets, along with quality of life. The Pomurje region can be counted as one of the most discerning regions in Slovenia for foreign direct investment because it draws upon a pool of highly skilled, multilingual, motivated workforce and also provides business zones that are equipped to the highest modern standards.
Another one of Pomurje’s most important advantages are the special incentives on offer, which allow registered companies operating in the region and companies owned by foreign investors to take advantage of the plethora of corporate tax incentives available for the purpose of investment or employment. Special tenders are also available, where companies can receive up to 50% co-financing of their investment costs. These measures may also be combined with the various national incentives on offer in Slovenia, helping to provide some of the most competitive conditions for foreign direct investment in Europe.
