World Bank To Consult Road, Water Sector Projects in Bulgaria

The World Bank will consult Bulgaria on the implementation of projects in the road and water sectors, regional development minister Lilyana Pavlova said.

Lazar Lazarov, head of Bulgaria's road infrastructure agency, and Peter Harrold, World Bank director for Central Europe, signed on Thursday an agreement for the provision of analytical services in support of the development of the road sector in Bulgaria, state-run Bulgarian News Agency reported.

Pavlova, who attended the signing ceremony, recalled that a similar agreement has been signed for the water sector.

The activities to be carried out under the agreement will be financed with 5.0 million levs ($3.3 million/2.6 million euro) from EU-funded operational programme Transport.

The World Bank's expert opinion will also be tapped in the implementation of an EU directive on road safety in a project, which is scheduled to be completed by 2014.
