A German company is considering an investment in Bulgaria that will create 2 000 new jobs. This became clear during a meeting of the Minister of Economy and Industry Nikola Stojanov with representatives of the company. They are on a visit to our country to look at specific locations for opening new production. The meeting was also attended by Deputy Minister of Economy Irina Shtonova.
“You can count on the full support and assistance of the Bulgarian institutions throughout the investment process,” Minister Nikola Stojanov stressed. He added that for a number of regions in Bulgaria an enterprise of this scale would be structurally decisive and the investor would receive additional support from the local municipalities. “For all problems and questions you can address me directly and I am sure that we will overcome any administrative obstacle in the shortest possible time,” Minister Stojanov stressed.
The company is one of the leading German automotive suppliers. During the discussion, Minister Stojanov was introduced to the company’s overall activities and production worldwide. The main advantages of Bulgaria were highlighted as its geographical location and the fact that our country is part of the European Union. Different locations were discussed, meeting the parameters set by the investor and it was agreed to continue the operational talks in the coming days.
The Minister of Economy and Industry emphasized on the fact that Germany is the biggest strategic partner of our country in bilateral trade and introduced the representatives of the company with the assessment of the German investors about the conditions for doing business in Bulgaria.
One of the top priorities for the Minister of Economy and Industry Nikola Stojanov is to improve the activities of the Bulgarian trade attachés abroad, as the visit and the deepening of the interest of the German company is a consequence of the consistent work of the Office for Commercial Economic Affairs in Munich.
