The President noted that, to this end, a top political level dialogue should be held and the business should feel support.

Rumen Radev reiterated his call on the Bulgarian state and business to be ready to launch projects. “This means that we should not only explain how good the business environment in Bulgaria is, but also present ready projects with clear parameters, with precisely specified proposals, so that we can negotiate on site,” Rumen Radev said.

Taking a question concerning the results of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly for Bulgaria, the President noted that the social and economic development of Bulgaria should be supported by our country’s good place in the world in political and social terms. “When the top political level dialogue is constructive and open, this brings about trust and the latter is important for doing business, for making investments, for cooperation in the sphere of education, science and technologies,” Rumen Radev further said.
