Construction activity in Slovenia moderated in the second quarter, but was still notably higher than last year. After strengthening significantly in the first quarter according to seasonally adjusted data, the value of construction put in place decreased for the rest of the year. Activity declined from the record highs reached at the beginning of the year in all segments of construction; the largest drop was observed in non-residential construction. Data on business tendencies in construction and data on contracts suggest that the slowdown in construction activity continues. Growth in the number of employed persons continued in the middle of the year.
