Business sentiment in Bulgaria slides in September

A monthly poll among business managers in Bulgaria showed a slide in optimism in September 2015, mainly because of more pessimistic views in industry, construction and the retail trade.

The National Statistical Institute (NSI) said that its monthly business climate indicator was 2.9 percentage points lower in September than in August.

Previously, the NSI monthly poll had shown increased optimism about the business climate every month from January to May 2015, with a drop in July and a slight recovery in August.
