EU Member States will be able to present their national recovery plans in Brussels by 2022. The postponement was announced a few days ago, outgoing Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Donchev said. The Bulgarian plan is expected to be approved by the government tomorrow. Previously, it was expected that if Bulgaria submitted its plan to the EC by the end of April and if it received approval, the first payments could be received in July, BNR reporter Marta Mladenova informed.
We recall that in mid-April, in an interview with BNR, former Deputy Prime Minister Daniela Bobeva warned that Bulgaria would have to rely on its own budget for a while as EU money would not be received this year.
