Founded in 1991, the Slovene Press Agency (STA) is national press agency which covers events at home and worldwide using its own, as well as foreign sources. STA is a limited liability company, majority owned (96 per cent) by the state. It is a member of the European Association of News Agencies (EANA), and exchanges reports with the following press agencies: APA, ANSA, HINA, TANJUG, MTI, DPA, AFP, AP, IRNA, ATA, TASR, ITAR-TASS, Xinhua, MIA, MAKFAX, and MINA. It has permanent offices in Brussels, New York, Rome, Vienna, Zagreb and Belgrade, and its correspondents also cover important events elsewhere in the world.

STA's main products are its daily Slovene language service, an abridged service for the Slovene regional media, a daily information service from Slovenia in English, and the STA daily bulletin. Every day it produces around 250 news reports in Slovenian and an additional 40 reports in English. Furthermore, it also offers an original text service, O-STA, for unedited press releases from subscribers and a special service for SMS, WAP and web. STA is also a member of CEE, a business wire pool of 13 Central European news agencies.


From 2002–2004 the Slovene Press Agency, Government Public Relations and Media Office, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs published the weekly English newsletter Slovenia News; online issues from September 2002 to March 2004 are available at the website below. Since September 2004 the newsletter has been published in a new format by the Government Communication Office.

In 2010 the Slovene Press Agency launched the new website called Misli slovensko - Think Slovenian, later renamed into Misli (in Slovenian Think or Thoughts). The website features selected contents on arts and culture: interviews, cultural news from Slovenia and abroad, cultural policy issues, book reviews, statistics, etc), partly in English. Special blocks of news covered bigger international cultural projects like World Book Capital Ljubljana 2010 and Maribor, European Capital of Culture 2012. The website is co-funded by the Ministry of Culture.
