Bulgaria Registered Six-Year Peak in FDI in 2015

In 2015, foreign direct investment (FDI) attracted to Bulgaria amounted to nearly 1.6 billion euros, which represented a 22.5 % increase compared to 2014, with the figures registering a six-year peak.
In an interview for Standart daily, Stamen Yanev, executive director of the InvestBulgaria Agency, described Bulgaria as a truly attractive destination for investments, with the results from last year proving it.
Yanev expressed hope that the pace and political and economic stability will be maintained this year so that a new growth of investments will be registered in 2016.
The forecasts predicted that the most attractive sectors this year will be machine and car construction and outsourcing.
He identified food industry, tourism, chemical industry and organic farming as other possible sectors which could attract more investments.
One of the projects which will be awarded a certificate next week, concerns an attractive 7.6 million levs investment by Integrated Micro-Electronics Bulgaria, which is expected to create more than 400 new jobs in the car construction sector.
