MOSCOW, July 24. /TASS/. Russia wants to develop investment cooperation with Slovenia and sees a number of interesting investment projects, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with Slovenian national broadcaster RTV Slovenija.

"As for investments, we are looking ahead with optimism, even though it's not the best time now," Medvedev said. "Our total amount of cumulative investments is probably more than 500 million euros."

When asked about prospects for further cooperation between the two countries, Medvedev noted that Slovenia "has a number of projects interesting for Russia, which we would like to consider as investment cooperation priorities". These included projects in the manufacturing industry and the energy sector, the hospitality industry and tourism, he said.

"A whole range of famous Slovenian firms have their offices in Russia and produce goods enjoying good demand, by the way," Medvedev said, adding that he believed it was necessary to "overcome current temporary difficulties and expand our cooperation".

"I wish in five years Russia could turn into a more sustainable and successful country from an economic point of view, people would simply live better and could afford more and get more rest while working properly at the same time," the premier said, noting also that he wanted Russia to become "a modern and developed nation, friendly towards other countries, including our partner Slovenia".
