In his words, the Economy Ministry relies on speeded up growth and VAT increase in the economy.
“Development of sectors of high knowledge level aims at attracting and keeping young people in Bulgaria. Innovative projects are priority in the new programming period and the next year budget,” the Minister of Economy noted.
“Much more funds are envisaged for national co-funding. The Competitiveness and Innovation OP 2014-2020 is precisely with a special focus on innovations in the current period 2014-2020. A scheme for implementation of innovations in this operational programme is yet to be opened by the end of the year,” Minster Lukarski said.
He stated that the programme has a budget at the amount of 50 million euros.
