"I am glad to inform you that today, at its very first meeting, the Bulgarian Government decided to nominate Mariya Gabriel to this post. Given Gabriel's professional qualities and long experience in the European Parliament, I am confident that she will make an important and valuable contribution to the Commission's work," Borissov said.
