Bilateral Relations Between Slovenia And India
Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Diplomatist|June 2021
Bilateral relations between Slovenia and India are not focused solely on political and foreign affairs. Economic cooperation represents an extremely important part too. India is the second most important trading partner of Slovenia in Asia.

Slovenia and India share a long tradition of friendly relations, which have strengthened further after Slovenia’s independence 30 years ago. Our two countries share a commitment to respect international law, democracy, freedom, and human rights, and are both advocates of effective multilateralism. These common values facilitate our cooperation on the bilateral and multilateral levels as well as in the framework of EU – India relations. The cooperation and exchange of ideas between like-minded countries are of even greater importance in today’s restructuring of international relations.

In May 2022, Slovenia and India will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. Bilateral relations have grown in importance over the years, and have intensified after opening Embassies in our respective countries: Slovenia in New Delhi in 2002, and India in Ljubljana in 2007. Important visits were exchanged: Prime Minister of Slovenia was on a state visit to India in June 2011; there was an exchange of parliament visits at the highest level: Speaker of Lok Sabha visited Slovenia in May 2013, and President of National Assembly of Slovenia visited India in November 2015.

Slovenia was also extremely honored to welcome the Indian President’s first official visit to Slovenia in September 2019.

INDIA NEEDS TO SHED ITS SOCIALISTIC-ERA FEAR OF PRIVATE SECTOR BIG CORPORATIONS
