A Bulgarian government delegation will visit Beijing for talks in several key areas of transport, including railway freight traffic, and concessions of ports and airports.
The Bulgarian delegation will be led by Transport Minister Alexander Tsvetkov. It will be in China October 28-31, following a visit to South Korea.
It comes in the wake of several months of intensive contacts between the Bulgarian government and Chinese central and provincial authorities as well as companies on various potential joint projects such as the Bozhurishte Industrial Zone near Sofia.
Bulgaria's Economy Minister Traycho Traykov has stated several times that China was interested in receiving concessions over Bulgarian airports and ports in order to use them as a base for its exports to the EU.
