Bulgaria to support tourism, transport sectors with further 20.5 mln euro

Bulgaria's government said on Wednesday that it has allocated an additional 40 million levs ($24.9 million/20.5 million euro) under operational programme Human Resources Development to support employment in the tourism and transport sectors.

The two sectors have already benefited from 40 million levs of support during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the new funds will enable the government to extend the employment retention measures until the end of March, the government said in a statement following its weekly meeting.

So far, Bulgaria has supported 1,785 employers active in the sectors most-affected by the pandemic, helping them keep 26,000 employees, the government added.
