New InvestBulgaria Agency Head to Present Investment Promotion Strategy
Thursday, 22 January 2015
The InvestBulgaria Agency is preparing a comprehensive investment promotion strategy, according to Stamen Yanev, the newly appointed Executive Director of the Agency.
Yanev, who took over Wednesday from Svetoslav Mladenov, told the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency that representatives of NGOs, businesses, and the state would take part in the preparation of the draft of the strategy.
He assured that the strategy would match the program of the government, adding that the main goal would be to position Bulgaria as a top destination for long-term investment.
Daniela Vezieva, Deputy Economy Minister, who attended the appointment ceremony, assured that the top-level reshuffle at the InvestBulgaria Agency was not a political move, adding that the former management team of the unit would continue to work for the Agency as consultants.
Yanev urged Parliament to adopt a set of amendments to the Investment Promotion Act as soon as possible, thereby ensuring the compliance of domestic legislation with EU law and paving the way for the issuance of certificates by the InvestBulgaria Agency to a number of investment projects.
