The main industries are car parts, chemicals, electronics, electrical appliances, metal goods, textiles and furniture. The recovery has mainly been driven by rising exports so far. Growth should rebalance gradually towards private domestic demand through 2011 and 2012. The unemployment rate has yet to stabilize as government short-time work measures are being phased out and activity remains subdued. In March 2004, Slovenia became the first transition country to graduate from borrower status to donor partner at the World Bank. In December 2007, Slovenia was invited to begin the accession process for joining the OECD.
