Wednesday, 21 January 2015
Bulgarian President called for the accelerated integration of Bulgaria and the region into the European gas market, for diversification of energy sources and routes and for a balance as regards energy suppliers, the press centre of the President’s Office announced.
“I am not impressed by the plans for an energy centre and by a “grand slam“. I will be really impressed when the Bulgarian energy sector begins to function in a sustainable way and in the interest of the people and the economy, not of a group of oligarchs,“ said the Head of State, speaking before the participants in the Ninth Annual Conference Government Meets The Business. Mr Plevneliev was on Tuesday a special guest to the forum organised by the Capital.
Rosen Plevneliev remarked he was not against the idea of building a gas hub on Bulgarian territory but called for our country’s integration into the European gas market.
“We need urgent actions on the construction of gas interconnectors with Greece, Turkey, Serbia, and Romania as well as on exploiting possible gas fields of ours in the Black Sea shelf,“ Mr Plevneliev stressed.
