Development support for the municipality of Hrastnik and Trbovlje

In 2013 the Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted a resolution on additional temporary measures for development support in areas with high unemployment, which include the municipality of Hrastnik and Trbovlje. Its aim was to reduce the gap in development, create new jobs and stimulate employment, to create the conditions for long-term economic growth, start new innovative businesses, encourage investment and improve transport and economic infrastructure.

In the period between 2013 and 2018 the state budget for development projects will offer approximately € 30 million grants for:

  • co-financing of investments, purchase of machinery and equipment, technology transfer, purchase of buildings and land, for construction and craft works;
  • repayment of the employer's contributions to social security;
  • tax incentives for employment and investment,
  • incentives for sustainable rural development,
repair of transport and energy infrastructure.
