dependent on promulgating plans and enforcing environmental legislation, provision of a rapidly executed national environmental programme and creation of a sound development strategy. Unfortunately, creation of an efficient legislature capable of embracing EU directives in all individual environmental fields, such as management of urban waste water, drinking-water, waste disposal, will only be possible in the long term. It will also demand an essential increase in environmental investment and administrative capacity (Commission of European Union, 1997). Failure in the state budget to provide increased finance from 0.5 per cent to about 1.5 per cent GDP by 2003 for protection of the environment and nature will mean that Slovenian enterprises will further lag behind ecologically friendly industrial processes adopted in other developed countries. This, in turn, will diminish their own medium/long-term competitive capacity. After Slovenia's independence there were attempts to intensify and integrate the economic, political, safety and cultural aspects of the country into the newly formed European space. Its rapid adaptation to contemporary processes of sustainable development makes such moves even more important and, in the end, inevitable.
