President Plevneliev: Connectivity Is Prerequisite to Achieve Development

"Connectivity is a prerequisite for achieving development and economic growth at both national and regional and global level," Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev told journalists here on Friday, quoted by his Press Secretariat. He was referring to the common position reached by the participants in the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM 10).
The heads of State and government identified as a common priority the modernization and development of the transport infrastructure linking Europe and Asia by building high-speed railways and modernizing ports and airports, Plevneliev specified.
"Bulgaria can play an enormous part in this process through the completion of the motorway from Turkey to Serbia, by expanding the capabilities of Bulgarian industrial zones and building a high-speed railway to Istanbul," the President stressed. He sees this as an opportunity for Bulgaria to position itself on the trading route between Europe and Asia, which is the largest trading partner of European countries.
