EU Commission's Juncker, Bulgarian President Discuss Possibilities for Economic Growth

The situation in Bulgaria is not easy, because of the lack of economic growth. The average values have improved as compared to the previous year, but nonetheless Bulgaria is among the list of member states with lowest public debt.
That was the statement of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker at a joint press conference, following a meeting with Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev in Brussels on Thursday.
Among the topics discussed at their meeting was the question of whether the investment plan of the Commission can be adapted for Bulgaria.
Junker further announced that he anticipates that the EU Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM) will be ended in a few years.
Plevneliev, on the other hand, has acquainted the EU Commission President with the political realities in Bulgaria after the two years of protests and preliminary elections, stating that the country is now with a clear ambition for reforms.
He further assured Juncker that 2015 will be the year of stability for Bulgaria and that the hope is that it will become a Shengen member state soon.
Both shook hands in support of the idea for Energy Union presented on Wednesday.
