BMI View: Slovenia continues to display relative economic stability as it recovers from crisis in 2013 and expands faster than the EU average. With real wages and household income still benefitting from near zero inflation, private consumption will increase by 2.0% in 2016 and 2.4% in 2017 . C onsumer confidence has trended up since March and is conver ging with the regional average, bod ing well for improved food consumption spending . However, growth opportunities in higher value categories will remain limited.

Slovenia is positioned towards the top end of our Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) Food & Drink/Risk Reward Index for Q1 2017, ranked in third place behind Austria and the Czech Republic. The overall score of 51.6 is above the regional average of 46.2. The country's high ranking is primarily attributed to its strong risk profile, although this quarter sees the country move from second to third position out of the 18 countries surveyed. However, Slovenia scores more poorly in the rewards section due to its small population, subdued growth prospects and high level of market maturity.
