The Head of State Discussed the Integration of Bulgarian Business into the Three Seas Initiative with the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The Bulgarian private sector’s potential must be utilised to the fullest when carrying out the Bulgarian hosting of the Three Seas Initiative (3SI). This was the message of the President, who met with representatives of the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria (AmCham) and the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) at the Presidency today.

The inclusion of Bulgarian companies in fora complementing the Initiative would increase their visibility and create opportunities for partnership and funding key projects, especially in the field of high-tech and communications, Mr. Rumen Radev declared.

Representatives of both organisations expressed their support for the initiative for regional connectivity. The President and the Board of AmCham highlighted the potential of the 3SI to implement high added-value projects. Representatives of the biggest technological companies in the world are also expected to participate in the business forum to be held during the Bulgarian Presidency of the Initiative.

Mr. Rumen Radev and the management of the BCCI discussed the opportunity of attracting representatives of the Chambers of Commerce of the member states in the region to partake in the joint projects within the 3SI. The BCCI presented the priorities of the employer’s organisation to improve the working environment for Bulgarian business in times of crisis. The Head of State stressed that the measures in support of Bulgarian companies during the extraordinary epidemic conditions must be improved and accessible to a broader scope of affected companies, and must guarantee a more predictable business environment in the country.
