Bulgarian businesses are expected to be significantly facilitated in the presentation of European projects
Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and President of the European Investment Bank (EIB) Werner Hoyer officially opened an office of the bank in Sofia on 18 September, BTA reported. This is the first Bulgarian representation of the financial institution, which now has offices in 21 EU Member States and 22 countries outside the bloc. Prime Minister Boyko Borisov welcomed the opening of the EIB office in Bulgaria as it is expected to significantly facilitate Bulgarian businesses in presenting projects applying for European funding. In his view, the bank’s presence in the country will provide valuable support to the Bulgarian economy, including to private companies, by placing a direct point of contact with European financial vehicles, as well as consultancy services, at their disposal.
