International Journal of Management and Enterprise Development (IJMED), Vol. 8, No. 1, 2010

Abstract: Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are socially and economically very important since they represent 99% of all enterprises in the EU and more than 96% of all enterprises in Slovenia. In this paper, the comparison of the e-business in Slovenian and in the EU countries is presented. More than infrastructure is needed to extend e-business among SMEs, which is the case among Slovenian SMEs. Even if the broadband access to the internet in Slovenia is not a problem anymore, B2B e-business is not common among Slovenian SMEs as it is in the EU countries. On the other hand, B2G and C2G services are more widely spread among Slovenian companies and even among individuals than in the EU countries.
