Bulgaria's ministers in charge of regional development, European Union funds and transport go on a three-day working visit to Brussels, starting on July 13.
Rosen Plevneliev, Tomislav Donchev, and Alexander Tsvetkov are scheduled to confer with EU Commissioner for Regional Policy Johannes Hahn, EU Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva and Danuta Huebner, head of the Directorate General for Regional Development.
Minister Plevneliev is expected to present Bulgaria's action plan under the EU Danube Strategy at the European Parliament.
Bulgarians have pinned lots of hopes on the center-right government, which is expected to speed up the country's ability to use European Union funds, control the proper use of EU subsidies, prevent fraud and clean up its record with the EU.
The European Commission froze in 2008 a total of EUR 825 M in pre-accession aid to Bulgaria and subsequently axed EUR 220 M over corruption concerns.
