EU membership placed Slovenia within a new institutional and development framework, which has fundamentally changed the conditions and modes of national development. Slovenia as an EU member has had to reconsider its strategic position within a broader global framework. It has had to look for ways to achieve its national objectives in a sustainable way and in line with the common European rules, policies and strategies, and above all with the reformed Lisbon Strategy.
Slovenia and other EU countries have been faced with the challenges of speeding up economic development, ensuring higher employment and social security, improving the environment, preserving nature and using natural resources in a sustainable way. The Reform Programme for Achieving the Lisbon Strategy Goals is the Slovenian Government's response to these challenges, providing measures to stimulate the restructuring of the economy and to liberalise it still further, along with measures to boost economic growth and employment.
