Slovenia has decided to bite the bullet to avoid a bailout as its budget deficit soars this year to 7.8 percent and it struggles to pay its bills.

The decision has been made to sell off 15 of the country's biggest companies, raise VAT, slash the budget deficit by more than half by next year, and strike a public sector pay deal.
