Positive preliminary assessment of Slovenia’s request for €541 million disbursement under the Recovery and Resilience Facility

The Commission has endorsed a positive preliminary assessment of Slovenia’s payment request for €231 million in grants and €310 million in loans under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF). This is Slovenia’s second payment request under the RRF. With their request, the Slovenian authorities provided detailed and comprehensive evidence demonstrating the satisfactory fulfilment of 41 milestones and three targets.

On 15 September 2023, Slovenia submitted to the Commission a payment request based on the achievement of the 41 milestones and three targets set out in the Council Implementing Decision. These cover a set of transformative reforms related to flood management, energy efficiency, green and digital transition and education.

The Slovenian national recovery and resilience plan includes a wide range of investments and reforms in17 thematic components. The plan will be supported by €1.61 billion in grants, and €1.07bn in loans. To date, Slovenia has received €231 million in pre-financing (grants) on 17 September 2021, and €50 million in grants on 20 April 2023, following the positive assessment of Slovenia’s first payment request. 

The Commission has now sent its positive preliminary assessment of Slovenia’s fulfilment of the milestones and targets required for this payment to the Economic and Financial Committee (EFC), asking for its opinion. Following the EFC’s opinion, the Commission will adopt the final decision on the disbursement of the financial contribution, after which the disbursement to Slovenia would take place.
