Bulgaria’s Transport Ministry has proposed that the cabinet agree to cut the tonnage tax for passenger ships in a move to boost cruise tourism.

The new tariff, on the agenda of an April 15 2015 meeting of the cabinet, would result in a reduction of the fees payable by passenger ships at Bulgarian ports by an average of 14 per cent.

The proposal to amend a cabinet decree on tariffs adopted in 2007, which the government was expected to adopt, is aimed at improving the conditions for passengers and cruise travel in Bulgarian ports, according to a government statement.
