Surprisingly, merely 1% of American companies exports, and therefore they see in it their greatest opportunity for development and creation of new working positions. They agreed upon supporting the Invest in America programme, as well. Hence there was no opposition just for a fact that someone else is the profounder. I sincerely wish that there would be similar sustenance towards positive suggestions also in Slovenia.

Therefore I am especially glad to learn that Mr. Borut Pahor, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia expressed willingness to listen to the constructive suggestions regarding the necessary changes – if we wish to attract more FDI to Slovenia and become a better business and investment environment – which were on behalf of AmCham Slovenia and U.S. Embassy on Friday, 5 November 2010 to the Prime Minister expressed by Mr. Tomaž Lovše, the President of AmCham Slovenia and Mr. Bradly Freden, Charge d Affaires a.i. of the US Embassy.

I wish you great November and I hope you will take some time out of your busy schedule to attend our events, since we will have great guests.
