Prime Minister of Slovenia, Borut Pahor on Wednesday wooed Indian investment back home and said his country is on the "safe-side" of the 17-member eurozone.
Speaking at "Slovenia-India: Coming together" interaction in Bangalore, Pahor pointed out problems in the eurozone, citing bailouts for Greece, Ireland and Portugal.
But he said Slovenia is on the "safe side" of the eurozone and "will stay so".
Pahor invited investment from India in different sectors, including in banking and tourism.
Slovania is too small to finance itself to meet its goal of becoming one of the most developed countries in the European Union and worldwide, he said. "We desperately need foreign investment".
He said no matter if he stayed in office of Prime Minister or someone else takes the job, business environment for investors would be ensured.
Pahor, accompanied by a high-level ministerial and business delegation, said Slovania is a "strong and committed friend" of India.
Karnataka's Minister for Large and Medium Industries Murugesh R Nirani invited Slovenian investors to invest in the State and assured all support for their ventures.
