The author deals with the trans-boundary economic cooperation as a special kind of economic cooperation of the Republic of Slovenia during the Yugoslav socialist period. Among all Yugoslav republics, Slovenia was the one most closely connected and integrated with the European economic area. Apart from the care of its minority, it was economic cooperation that most characterized Slovenia's efforts for association beyond its national borders. In many ways, Slovenia's economic progress depended on successful trade and cooperation with its neighbours, notably Austria and Italy. Various forms of bilateral trans-border economic cooperation gradually developed into multilateral cooperation at the regional level. The most significant and successful form of Slovenia's regional cooperation proved to be the Alps-Adriatic Working Community, founded in 1978.
