President Plevneliev: I Am Proud We Traveled Road to Some Meaningful Priorities for Bulgaria

In his speech at the opening of the annual conference of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor in Bulgaria, President Rosen Plevneliev said he was proud that for the past five years with him as a head of state, Bulgaria has traveled the long way from the so-called "Grand Slam," which is a series of three unrealized energy projects with Russian participation - "Belene," "Burgas-Alexandroupolis" and "South Stream," to a few meaningful priorities for Bulgaria - innovation, dual education system, innovation ecosystems, energy efficiency, liberalization and diversification. The Bulgarian President pointed out that the sphere of information and communication technologies forms 1.86 percent of GDP and provides job to 17,500 people. More than 35 thousand Bulgarians work in the outsourcing industry. The automotive cluster, created 4 years ago, today includes over 20 factories and provides more than 25 thousand jobs, he added. 
President Plevneliev also said that Sofia was one of 10 cities in the world with the most favorable conditions for startup companies, according to "Forbes." More than 190 startups have been created by young people in Bulgaria and over 50 of these companies generate income and provide 600 jobs.
