Information Visit of Bulgarian Journalists to the EU Commission: TTIP, Juncker Plan, Energy Union (ROUNDUP)

The agenda of the information visit of Bulgarian journalists to the European Commission in Brussels included a variety of themes.
The first topic on the agenda was the progress of the negotiation process of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which is also called “the biggest bilateral trade deal in history”.
The results of four rounds of negotiations held this year, out of total eleven, will be presented. These are the negotiations in Miami in October, in Brussels in July, in New York in April, and again in Brussels in February.
Special attention was paid to the investment plan for Europe as known as the Juncker Plan and the already started work of its European Fund for Strategic Investments.
It is known that Bulgaria is the eighth country in a row, which announced its participation with the amount of  100 million euros through co-funding of projects approved by the Bulgarian Bank for Development.
Activities of the structural EU funds in Bulgaria, which funding through the programming period until 2020 will pass under the motto: One Direction – Many Opportunities, will also be presented within the frames of the information visit.
Another important focus area was the progress on the published in February by the EU Commission Energy Union Framework Strategy, which already enters the context of the First Global Deal to Combat Climate Change adopted last Saturday.
The Energy Union is one of the five priorities in the EU Council strategy programme and one of the ten mandates of the European Commission presided by Jean-Claude Juncker.
