06-24-2010 16:52 BJT

SHANGHAI, June 24 (Xinhua) -- Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor said Thursday Slovenia's decision to take part in the Shanghai World Expo was a good one.

Pahor, who is on a working visit to China, attended Slovenia's National Pavilion Day at the Shanghai World Expo.

Early on, Slovenia faced a difficult decision on whether to participate in the Expo as the world financial crisis posed some problems to the country, said Pahor, who then just took office as Prime Minister of Slovenia.

But the country made a correct decision, he said. The move was of great importance to enhance economic and trade between Slovenia and China.

To overcome the difficulties of the financial crisis, Slovenia needs to be bold and seek opportunities for cooperation, Pahor said.

During his stay in Shanghai, Pahor also witnessed the opening ceremony of the Consulate General of Slovenia in Shanghai, which he said opens a new chapter in the history of Slovenia-China ties and will further promote exchanges and cooperation between businesses of the two nations.

Pahor arrived in Shanghai on Wednesday and will conclude his China visit late on Thursday.
