Presentation content:

Marcel Fratzscher will talk about how Germany, Slovenia’s most important partner, will develop in the coming years, where it is now and where it will be in five years, and whether it, an extremely traditional economic power, will be able to overcome internal political crisis and speed up investment in infrastructure and knowledge to catch up with China.
