Twenty Sofia-based Government Agencies To Be Relocated

Some twenty Sofia-based government agencies will be relocated starting in the autumn, the state-run Bulgarian News Agency reported quoting finance minister Simeon Dyankov.

"If the high-ranking administrators go around the country, we will have a much better idea about what the economy needs," Dyankov said.

The move is expected to revitalize big cities with universities such as Blagoevgrad, Rousse, Varna, Veliko Turnovo and Burgas.

Prime minister Boiko Borisov said on Sunday that the agriculture ministry will be moved to Plovdiv. By the end of June the tourism departments of the economy ministry will also be relocated to Plovdiv. Borisov also announced plans to move the Fisheries and Aquacultures Agency in the Black Sea port city of Varna and the Vine and Wine Agency in Haskovo or Pleven.
