This article discusses how the transportation infrastructure and cross-border development impact the general and physical development of particular areas and of the Slovenian country as a whole. The author describes the activities in the transportation realm that should be undertaken before Slovenia joins the European Union (EU; Slovenia joined in 2004). Topics covered include the general model in transportation, the strategic options of Slovenia and its economy in the new union, mobility, legal and institutional integration of the transport activity of Slovenia in Europe, supply and demand considerations, the development of transportation polity, the development of complementing and supporting factors (such as information and communication technology, industry of vehicles, science and research institutes), the role of government, and international relationships (including main transport corridors from and through Slovenia). The author concludes that taking into consideration all the increasingly open borders, the proposed economic development will have a favorable impact on competitiveness and cooperation among regions and states, thus resulting in an increase in the flow of goods, capitals, and services, and in increased mobility of the population.
