President Rumen Radev Held a Working Meeting with German Ambassador Christoph Eichhorn

The Head of State, Mr. Rumen Radev held a working meeting at the Presidency with the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Bulgaria, His Excellency Mr. Christoph Eichhorn.

Bilateral economic cooperation, the perspectives for sustainable development of the business climate in Bulgaria, as well as the potential to increase added value in factories opened with German investments in the country were all among the focal points of the meeting. Both sides shared the assessment of the large community of four hundred thousand Bulgarian citizens living and working in Germany but remaining closely tied with their homeland as a real factor in the transfer of new knowledge, skills and models for the development of the business environment in Bulgaria.

The energy transformation within the EU and the approaches for establishing a modern and carbon neutral energy sector while considering the social aspects of this long-term process were also discussed during the meeting. The President and the Ambassador also exchanged opinions on the EU enlargement policies, as well as on the upcoming Three Seas Initiative Summit to be held in Sofia, an Initiative in which Germany is a strategic partner.
