Government Adopts Programme for Development of Defence Capabilities of Armed Forces

The government adopted Wednesday a programme for development of the defence capabilities of the Bulgarian Armed Forces until 2020, Deputy Defence Minister Dimiter Kyumyurdjiev told the press.  "This document provides the legal groundwork for starting the reform in the Bulgarian armed forces," Kyumyurdjiev said.
He also said that a workgroup of the Ministry has prepared revisions to the Defence and Armed Forces Act to allow joint protection of the Bulgarian air space with another NATO country.
The programme is a strategic document which will serve as a basis for a plan for development of the armed forces. All operational and tactical plans will agree with it.
The programme makes a political commitment for increasing defence spending to 1.35 per cent of GDP in 2016 to 1.5 per cent in 2018 and 2 per cent in 2024.
