Slovenia is a small but emerging European market that is one of a group of 9 in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)  that have long term growth prospects. It will be getting European Union (EU) funding until 2022.

Its geographical position means it’s a gateway to south-eastern European markets – it has strong links historically with the nearby markets of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia.

Around 20 British businesses – including PricewaterhouseCoopers and Unilever – currently operate in Slovenia, and if you’re thinking of joining those businesses, you’ll want a simple and cost-effective way to keep in touch with colleagues or clients over there – and a teleconference offers exactly that.

It remains a close partner of the Czech Republic, as well as Poland and Hungary, as members of the Visegrad Group, set up to promote cooperation and European integration.

And after initially having a frosty relationship with the European Union (EU) and NATO, things eventually thawed out as the country underwent economic reform and it joined both organisations in 2004.

The country now has one of the fastest growth rates in the European Union and OECD – so if you’ve got business interests over there, you’ll want an easy and convenient way to keep in touch.

And a conference call offers exactly that, needing nothing more than a landline or mobile phone.
