“I still cannot reveal details about the project, but it will soon become clear,” Yanev said.
In the discussion about the development possiblities of Pleven and the region and the attraction of more investors participated vice PM Meglena Kuneva, Ms. Daniela Vezieva, Deputy Minister of Economy of the Republic of Bulgaria, Stefan Petkov , Mayor of Pleven, Ralitsa Dobreva, Governor of Pleven province, representatives of business, industry and employers’ organizations and others.
Daniela Vezieva revealed that development of a strategy for investments in the regions is planned. “A policy is working, when coordinated with regional structures and implemented jointly by the central and regional government”, said vice PM Kuneva. In addition, she said that it is currently actively being worked on reducing the administrative burden in the entry of new investors, which is one of the main obstacles to foreign investments in the region and in the country as a whole. Invest Bulgaria Agency’s Executive Director Stamen Yanev briefly drafted the activities of the Agency and expressed ambition for the strengthening and improvement of the investment process in order to stimulate the Bulgarian economy and encourage regional employment.
Pleven is a city with an excellent location, lying on the main route from Sofia to Bucharest and therefore has a great potential of attracting foreign investments to help build new industrial zones in the region. Last week in Pleven the factory for wired equipment Neksans Autoelektriks was opened with 50 new work places and more specialists are expected to be hired in the future.
At the meeting the project of the Bulgarian Investment Agency “Promoting the advantages of investing in Bulgaria” was presented, which aims to promote Bulgarian business worldwide.
