Drafting of the new long-term strategy began during
the summer of 2016. Nine topical debates on the individual contents were held
in June 2016, in which more than 200 professionals and government officials
participated. This was followed by a workshop in September 2016, at which a
discussion was held about the first potential range of indicators for
monitoring the Strategy. On the basis of the expert discussion, the Government
Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy together with the Ministry
of Finance and the Institute of Macroeconomic Analysis and Development compiled
the first draft of the strategic orientations and goals of the Slovenian
Development Strategy 2030. In December 2016 and January 2017, all of the
relevant government departments issued opinions on the enclosed document. An
interactive conference was held in January 2017 at the level of key government
officials, at which views were exchanged on the content of the individual goals
and discussions were held about their mutual connections.
The contributions of the departments and participants served as an important
basis for the further development of the Strategy. The connections between the
individual areas were simultaneously determined through a survey which was sent
to professional stakeholders in February 2017. Professional harmonisation was
carried out in March and April, followed by the compiling of the first draft of
the Strategy, which was sent to the departments for harmonisation in May 2017.
Parallel discussions were held regarding the key performance indicators and the
placement of sustainable development goals in the strategic document, and
regarding the implementation and monitoring of the document. In cooperation
with the OECD, an adapted long-term framework for assessing the impacts of the
individual scenarios or agreed measures is being prepared, through which the
achieving of the Strategy’s goals will be monitored.
On the basis of the discussions and the comments received, a second draft of
the Strategy was drawn up, which included a proposal for the key performance
indicators. The draft was sent to all government departments in July 2017 with
a request for the determination of target values for the key performance
indicators. After another thorough review of the Strategy together with the
indicators and target values, the third draft of the Strategy was discussed on
22 September 2017 by the Permanent Interdepartmental Working Group for
Development Planning, which approved the draft with various additional changes.
On 12 October 2017, the Slovenian government was briefed on the draft Slovenian
Development Strategy 2030 and found that the materials were interdepartmentally
consistent, and adopted a resolution that the document constitutes an
appropriate basis for the commencement of public consultation. Public
consultation on the draft Slovenian Development Strategy 2030 began on 12
October 2017 and ran through 9 November 2017. During this time, the Government
Office received several contributions from various organisations and interested
parties. In addition to the public consultation, several discussions were held
with interested stakeholders, who wanted a more detailed presentation of the
Strategy and a discussion of the draft document. After the public consultation,
the draft Slovenian Development Strategy 2030 and a report on the consultation
were drawn up. After a final round of interdepartmental harmonisation, the
draft Strategy was discussed by the Slovenian government at its 159th regular
session on 7 December 2017.
