Slovakia and Slovenia belonged to the former socialist units of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia, respectively, which meant that a journey to the EU for both countries was demanding - requiring to undergo through major reforms in their legal, economic and socio-political environments. The introduction of competition law, including merger control rules was another arduous challenge that both Slovakia and Slovenia had to master. This article will critically evaluate the introduction and further development of merger control regimes in Slovakia and Slovenia as far as jurisdictional, procedural and most importantly substantive issues are concerned.
