OECD says sees no immediate need to bail out Slovenia

LJUBLJANA, April 9 Tue Apr 9, 2013 5:25am EDT

LJUBLJANA, April 9 (Reuters) - Slovenia, which is struggling to avoid a bailout, is not in immediate need of an economic rescue, Yves Leterme, deputy secretary general for the OECD, said on Tuesday.

"The government of this country has been able to meet its financial needs without difficulties so far," Leterme said in Ljubljana while presenting a critical economic survey on the euro zone country.

"It was at a relatively high cost (but) as far as we are concerned, there is no reason to anticipate an immediate need for a bailout."

Calpers, the largest U.S. public pension fund, manages retirement benefits for more than 1.6 million people, with assets comparable in value to the entire GDP of Israel. The Calpers investment portfolio had a historic drop in value, going from a peak of $250 billion in the fall of 2007 to $167 billion in March 2009, a loss of about a third during that period. It is now around $200 billion. REUTERS/Max Whittaker   (UNITED STATES) - RTXPWOZ
