EU Commissioner for Taxation, Customs, Anti-fraud and Audit, Algidras Semeta will visit Bulgaria on Friday to discuss the measures being taken by the country to tackle fraud and irregularities in EU funds.
In Sofia Semeta will confer with Bulgaria's PM Boyko Borisov and his two Deputies - Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov and Finance Minister Simeon Djankov.
The guest will also have meetings with members of the parliamentary anti-corruption committee and of the National Audit Office.
Semeta's visit to Sofia is part of his tour of all EU member states to discuss issues of the tax and customs policy.
Prior to that, Semeta visited Bulgaria's neighbor Romania, where he had talks with Finance Minister Gheorghe Ialomitianu, Head of the Customs Radu Marginean and other key figures.
A key objective during his Balkan visits will be to discuss the measures for combating fraud and irregularities in EU funds, and to see where the Commission can provide further guidance and support in pushing forward and consolidating improvements in both countries.
