For the third time in three years, "eKapija" and Slovenian Business Club have united, proud to create another business Serbian tradition, through expectation of publication and presentation of the Slovenian-Serbian stories ranking list of one year, which have been of greatest interest and readership on "eKapija".

As the years pass, topics and interests have been changing, and this year three themes and slogans have marked this third ranking list. In fact,

- The most famous Serbian economy "players" have actively begun to position themselves in Slovenia, both through acquisitions and through positioning and direct investment in the first ex-Yugoslavia country that entered the European Union.

- Many small Slovenian investors and investments were evenly distribute almost all over Serbia.

- "Buy and build more and better in Serbia, while at the same time someone else buys you" - read "Mercator". Definitely, "Mercator" has been very active in Serbia, bravely and optimistically investing in the country, and simultaneously did the process of taking ownership of the large retail chains in the head office in Slovenia.

For this "story of 12 stories," one might say something more - it started in 2011 with little sadder and not always optimistic news, and as time went by, the stories were getting better and better.

Let's start from the beginning.


It started with New Year celebrations, which have been enlighted with tens of thousands of young and less young Slovenians on the squares and in restaurants of Belgrade, and then they were followed up by Orthodox Christmas, numerous Slavas with rich traditional menus....

Readers' attention was on the following:

"Winner" of January was the news that the construction of Zezelj bridge in Novi Sad will be started in summer, with signed contract worth 45.3 million euros.


February was marked by the following stories:

... While most attention was causing the storm around Serbian brands, Jaffa cakes, and the later statement that "Jaffa," placed in Slovenia, does not endanger the health of consumers.


In March there were fewer Serbian-Slovenian stories, but they were valuable because:

-Serbian "Nectar", along with 18 other opponents, announced its intent to take "Fructal".

Economic fall started, and

- "Antares & Bdrp" started the production of sports clothing in Sivac, employing 75 workers and

- "Gorenje" decided not to build a factory in Valjevo in 2011, while the City of Valjevo announced that it expects the Slovenians demand just an extension of the deadline.

The winning story is of one man, Zoran Jankovic, winner of the election in Slovenia, who is believed to be exporting project in Slovenia by many, since Zoran was born in Smederevo where he spent most of his childhood.
