Bulgaria’s economy minister and Serbia’s mining and energy minister have issued calls to boost economic co-operation between their countries.

“Bulgaria and Serbia have always been fraternal peoples, but in recent years we have not paid enough attention to economic co-operation, we have a lot of work to do and I hope that in these two days we will make progress,” Bulgarian Economy Minister Bozhidar Lukarski said in Belgrade on June 1, at the opening of the Joint Intergovernmental Commission for Economic Co-operation between Bulgaria and Serbia.
