Slovenia's government has passed an emergency law on the last week to help the embattled tourism sector, local media reported. The package is worth EUR 243.5 million, with new tourist vouchers accounting for the bulk of new spending, news portal Sloveniatimes.com wrote.
All adults residing in Slovenia as of June 30 will get a EUR 100 voucher to spend on activities ranging from tourism and restaurants to sports and culture.
