Business forum Slovenian Green and Circular Economy

Slovenian business center

Being “green” is almost a part of the Slovenian national identity. The first in a series of business forums at EXPO Dubai will therefore present the best of Slovenian Green and Circular Economy.

Slovenia was the first country in the world to constitutionally protect its water. In 2016 Slovenia became the first Green Destination in the world. Slovenians are proud of the pristine nature of their country, which is mostly covered by woodlands. In the past few years Slovenia has become a flagship in sustainable development, due to technological innovations and niche market leaders. Interested? Welcome to join us at the business forum Slovenian Green and Circular Economy and learn more about the challenges and solutions of Slovenian companies for sustainable development and better future.
