Slovenia's gross national savings is almost a quarter of its GDP - as is its gross domestic investment (28%).

 CER | Slovenia: Bush-Putin Summit 2001
Forgoing the glories of Slovenia as provided by press releases from the national tourist board, the magazine ran a rare, meaty piece on the country's obscenely high suicide and alcoholism rates.
Slovenia had high hopes that this summit would significantly raise its profile, and while feature articles in Business Week and The Moscow Times do not hurt, a feature in The New York Times or another heavy-hitter would have been much more gratifying.
The immediate effect of the Summit on Slovenia's international profile may not have been much, but that does not mean that all of the promotional activity the country undertook during the summit was a failure.
