Our trade with Switzerland in 2021 exceeds half a billion euros, marking an increase of over 22%. This became clear during a meeting between the Minister of Economy and Industry Nikola Stojanov and the Ambassador of the Swiss Confederation N. Pr. Raymund Fuhrer.
‘I am confident that the organization of meetings to present the conditions for business in Bulgaria will lead to the strengthening of cooperation between our countries in various areas,’ Minister Stojanov said. In this regard, he pointed out that the Ministry of Economy and Industry is ready to organize a meeting, part of the ‘breakfast with investors’ initiative, to intensify the economic relations between Bulgaria and Switzerland. Such meetings have already been held with Austria, Germany, Spain, France, Japan and the USA.
They also discussed joint actions to promote the potential between the two countries in the mechanical, electrical, electronics and ICT sectors. Minister Stojanov also highlighted the experience of Switzerland in the field of dual training, whose model Bulgaria has successfully applied in the field of education in the last few years.
The meeting was also attended by the Deputy Minister of Economy and Industry Dimitar Danchev, as well as Mr. Rolf Ott, Deputy Head of Mission in Bulgaria.
