Economic Policy in the Eurozone: The Case of Slovenia
Professor Dušan Mramor (Former Minister of Finance of Slovenia and University of Ljubljana) talked about the Eurozone and the economic policy of Slovenia.
Mramor, who was actively involved in the transition process integrating Slovenia in the Eurozone, will be talking about the economic crisis the country faced and the decisions taken under his guidance by the Slovenian governments in response to it since 2000, focusing on how these pulled the country out of crisis.
