Regional Development Minister Pavlova Participates in Meeting on EU Strategy for the Danube Region

Regional Development and Public Works Minister  Liliyana Pavlova Wednesday participated in a Brussels meeting of the ministers responsible for  the EU 
Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) and the foreign ministers of the  countries participating in the initiative. The forum is intended to inform the ministers about Baden-Wuerttemberg's rotating presidency and to provide a platform for discussion of topical matters, including possible ways to finance the activities envisaged in the Strategy.
Pavlova told the participants that Bulgaria backs the joint declaration on the Strategy, which approves a single managing structure of the EUSDR entailing greater commitment of the riparian countries. The member states agree to apply the Troika leadership consisting of the previous, current and future rotating presidents.
The ministers discussed the need of better channelling of all financial resources in support of the Strategy's implementation.
Pavlova officially stated Bulgaria's wish to assume the EUSDR rotating presidency during its EU Presidency in the second half of 2018. She told the participants that Bulgaria had completed its coordination tasks at the national level. The EU Structural and Investment Funds have been the main source of financing, but the countries should seek possibilities for financing under various EU programmes managed by the European Commission, the financial institutions and the private sector.
