Culture Minister Vasko Simoniti said that Slovenia would probably go from analog to digital broadcasting in 2012, the ultimate deadline set by the European commission.

The shift represents a substantial financial problem for Slovenia, Simoniti said, on the margins of a meeting of EU culture ministers in Brussels on Nov. 14, 2005.

"I hope we can speed up the transition if we get financial support from abroad," Simoniti said. The first countries, for example Finland and Sweden, are expected to go digital in 2006.

Simoniti also suggested that Slovenia could focus more on inter-cultural dialogue when it chairs the EU in 2008, as 2008 has been declared the year of inter-cultural dialogue. (Slovenia Business Week)
