LJUBLJANA: The first-ever GCC-Slovenian Conference kicked off on Thursday in the Slovenian capital to discuss boosting cooperation, economic, commercial, and investment ties between the two sides amid aspirations to bolster the volume of commercial exchange between the two nations. The conference aims at tackling challenges and development opportunities in GCC countries, in addition to finding ways to boost cooperation between Slovenia and Gulf countries, Karl Erjavec, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, stated to KUNA following the conference opening. This event, which is attended by GCC Secretary-General Abdullatif Al-Zayani and a number of senior Gulf officials, provides a significant chance for exchanging views on improving investment opportunities, commercial exchange, and ways to face joint challenges and obstacles, Erjavec said.
