Editorial

This year will be remembered as one of the most difficult since independence, President Danilo Türk said in his New Year's message. He believes, however, that people should not become dispirited and that the reality checks brought about by the crisis are exactly what is needed to overcome it. He also called on people to strengthen social dialogue and search for common goals in the future.

 

The year 2011 could just as well be the year of a breakthrough in the recovery from the crisis, Prime Minister Borut Pahor pointed out in his New Year's message. He wished the people of Slovenia reason and courage, but also a bit more trust and encouragement among each other.
