After the successful return of the government’s economic delegation and the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor from Iran, which was also attended by representatives of the NHZ and Bioglobal companies, Director-General for Economic and Public Diplomacy Robert Kokalj, PhD, and Ms. Alma Židanek, authorised minister at the Directorate for economic diplomacy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, met with Asim Busch Putisch, PhD, and his team, composed of Uroš Pinter (legal counsellor), Sanela Omanovič (counsellor), Esad Ajeti (counsellor), Meri Emerson (counsellor), Lidija Pinter (marketing) and Maja Zajc (editor of My Doctor in Europe). The purpose of the visit was to introduce the activities of the NHZ and Bioglobal companies.


The Director-General for Economic and Public Diplomacy, Robert Kokalj, PhD, strives for and helps with connecting small and medium-sized enterprises with the purpose of finding economic partners in foreign markets.


Among its many tasks, the directorate for Economic and Public Diplomacy coordinates and organises visits of economic delegations, which accompany the highest state representatives of the Republic of Slovenia during their visits abroad.


Representatives of the NHZ and Bioglobal companies participated in several government economic delegations, which created exceptional business opportunities. On 3rd December, new opportunities will again be available when they visit Jordan and Egypt with the economic delegations, accompanied by President Borut Pahor.


On 15th December 2016, a Day of the Gulf countries will be held and highly eminent foreign guests are invited.


We were amazed by the engagement and effort of the Directorate for Economic and Public Diplomacy in the promotion of Slovenia and their help and openness towards Slovenian companies who are making economic connections abroad, for which we are sincerely grateful. We would like to wish them many successful business solutions.
