On the initiative of the Minister of Economy and Industry Nikola Stojanov, seven working groups have been launched today, which include experts from the ministry, representatives of employers and trade unions, as well as the National Association of Municipalities. The aim is to identify a package of measures in all priority areas to be adopted by the institutions and to facilitate the work of economic operators.
The topics are divided into the following areas:
- Measures to address the increased prices of natural gas, fuel and electricity;
- Measures to improve the business environment;
- Measures to improve the investment environment;
- Measures to improve the country’s foreign economic policy;
- Measures to promote the development of industrial parks in Bulgaria;
- Measures related to the Green Transition;
- Measures for the digital transformation of Bulgarian companies.
“Our goal is to be as fast as possible and within 3 weeks to have a package of urgent measures in each area to propose for adoption,” Minister Stojanov said at the launch of the working groups. He added that with proper organisation, tasks that have been delayed for years can be completed in a short period of time. To find the most credible solutions, all topics will be discussed operationally with the business, trade unions, municipalities and BAS.
Minister of Economy and Industry Nikola Stojanov presented these seven priority areas when he took office, and the topics were discussed and detailed together with employers, trade unions, municipalities and the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Each of the groups will be operationally led by a line deputy minister, and any other proposals and issues raised by business will be discussed as the work progresses.
