According to him, if it not had been for the government of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski, the construction of Hemus motorway would have moved forward rather than still being at project phase.
Borisov pointed out that in the past months the government made enormous efforts to defend the EU projects before officials in Brussels.
The funding for the majority of the projects expires at the end of the year and in case the funds are not absorbed, Bulgaria will not only lose them, but will also face repayments.
The prime minister noted that Hemus motorway is of vital importance to all of northern Bulgaria, especially to business, tourism and the economy as a whole.
Borisov added that Brussels clearly witnessed the achievements of the government and stood firmly behind the cabinet's policies.
In his words, Bulgaria's fiscal stability, decreasing unemployment, economic growth, good investment environment and security were all factors highly appreciated by the EU.
