With the awards for best foreign investors – FDI Award Slovenia – the Slovenian Government wants to recognise, reward and evaluate exceptional contributions of foreign investors in the Slovenian business environment.
Foreign investors are crucial for creating new jobs and providing an added value as well as for research and development, new technologies, and regional or international expansion.
This year’s award ceremony will be slightly different than usual – it will be more innovative but still connecting all of us. It will move to the world wide web where you will be able to meet this year's award recipients at a very special digital event.
