I will continue all the good practices and policies that have been launched and work for predictability for businesses and people. This was said by the Minister of Economy and Industry Bogdan Bogdanov, who took over the management of the Ministry from the caretaker Minister Nikola Stojanov.
‘The main priority for me is to build on the good results in the economic sector that were achieved last year,’ said Minister Bogdanov. He stressed that companies should have peace of mind to ensure investment growth and to minimise the effect of the expected recession at European level. ‘Foreign direct investment for the first quarter of the year recorded an increase of more than 10% compared to the same period last year and for me it is very important to create all the preconditions for improving these results,’ said Minister Bogdanov. He further added that he is a team player and will rely on the expertise of the administration in the Ministry of Economy and Industry to achieve all set targets.
The caretaker minister Nikola Stojanov emphasized that he leaves a well-functioning ministry and companies in the system. He pledged that he and his entire team would make every effort and be available to ensure maximum continuity and a smooth transition.
