Slovenia believes that we share the responsibilities toward citizens whether they are private individuals or market players. Therefore our IPv6 deployment goal is not only to meet the needs of the people within the Governemnt scope, i.e. public e-Services, but also for
the society by and large. Here we find no excuse for reinventing the wheel; we are going to strength our forces for encourage the relevant players to deploy IPv6 as fast as possible. However, the Government's direct influence can be presented only in areas reagrding the public sector websites and e-Gov services.

The presentation will try to show some near-future planned actions. We would also like to announce the Slovenian proposal to setup the "European IPv6 Profile".
