Economy Ministry Proposes Guidelines for New Economic Strategy

The Economy Ministry proposed guidelines for a new Strategy for Sustainable Economic Development of Bulgaria during the first meeting of the National Economic Council (NEC) on Tuesday, Economy Minister Bozhidar Loukarski said.
Employer organizations and government ministries were given two weeks to propose measures for inclusion in the strategy. When NEC meets again on June 16, the strategy will be made into a programmatic document. The upcoming meeting will discuss the corporate community's concerns about the regulatory burden on 
businesses, said Loukarski, who chairs NEC. It will also discuss possible legislative changes to speed up the issuing of the so called "blue card" which allows foreign high-tech experts to stay and work in Bulgaria. The current permit procedure takes between six and nine months.
Tuesday's NEC meeting looked at matters which will be discussed further at subsequent meetings, among them legislative changes concerning local fees.
Loukarski said that next time employer organizations will be able to raise questions with Energy Minister Temenouzhka Petkova and Energy and Water Regulatory Commission Chairman Ivan Ivanov about the price of electricity.
