The primary objective of the Eurosystem, which part is also the Bank of Slovenia, is to maintain price stability. The Eurosystem aims at euro inflation rates of below, but close to, 2% over the medium term.
The Bank of Slovenia co-designs, implements and oversees a system of prudential rules for safe and sound operations by banks and savings banks, and ensures financial stability through the regular monitoring and analysis of banks.
Payment systems and securities settlement systems (settlement systems) are an important part of the economic and financial infrastructure, which allow for the transfer of funds and financial instruments between participants in payment and settlement systems.
Euro banknotes and coins are legal tender in Slovenia. The Bank of Slovenia ensures that the Slovenian market is supplied with authentic and fit currency, exchanges tolar banknotes and damaged euro banknotes, and sells commemorative and collector coins to collectors and other members of the public.
The Bank of Slovenia releases a range of publications covering its areas of activity. The focus is on analysis of the performance of the banking system, forecasts of economic developments, monitoring of direct investment, and international economic relations.
