President: Bulgaria Has Potential to Develop in Field of Innovations

According to President Rosen Plevneliev, the achievements of Bulgaria in the field of innovations are forthcoming and the country has great potential to develop in this sphere.
Plevneliev said this during his participation at the eleventh edition of the national innovation forum entitled “Development of an innovation environment for a sustainable economic growth in Bulgaria”.
In his words, the Bulgarian state has to provide favourable environment for the development of innovations and thus realise the potential of the country’s economy.
This could be achieved only though working together with dedication and providing the expected level of education and quality.
The Bulgarian president called on business to be more ambitious on the path to knowledge economy, outlining the opportunities for EU funding.
He noted that Bulgaria is the first member state of the EU with its own programme for education and innovations.
Plevneliev added that around 600 million euros are foreseen for education and innovations, while 1.4 billion euros are available to business under the Innovations and Competitiveness Operational Programme.
