On the initiative of the Minister of Economy and Industry, Nikola Stoyanov, seven working groups, which include experts from the Ministry, representatives of employers and trade unions, as well as the National Association of Municipalities, are being launched today. The aim is to identify a package of measures in all priority areas to be adopted by the institutions and to ease the work of economic entities.
The topics are divided into the following areas:
Measures to deal with the increased prices of natural gas, fuels and electricity;
Measures to improve the business environment;
Measures to improve the investment environment;
Measures to improve the foreign economic policy of the country;
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 quick as possible and within 3 weeks to have a package of emergency measures in each area to propose for adoption," said Minister Stoyanov at the launch of the working groups. He added that with proper organization, tasks that have been postponed for years can be completed in a short period of time. In order to find the most correct solutions, all topics will be discussed operationally with business, trade unions, municipalities and BAS.
The Minister of Economy and Industry, Nikola Stoyanov, presented these seven priority areas as soon as he took office, and the topics were discussed and detailed together with employers, unions, municipalities and BAS. Each of the groups will be operationally led by a responsible deputy minister, and in the course of the work, all other proposals and problems raised by the business will be discussed.
