I am indeed, as already mentioned before, every so often tempted to go abroad for a longer period of time, yet get quickly over it, as I believe that it would not be right if we, who have a lot of will and life energy, would leave, whereas it is on the other hand high time that all those who do not share the system of values of the modern world, the normal corporate governance and the transparency should withdraw!

Thank you, Marjan! The fact, denoting that according to the Living Standard Index, Slovenia is taking the high16th place, is as well telling me that it is not by accident that Slovenia is the only country in the world bearing sLOVEnia in its name. We just need to be more aware of this.
