Increased optimism in construction, service industries boost view of Bulgaria’s business climate – poll

A regular poll by Bulgaria’s National Statistical Institute (NSI) has found slightly increased optimism about the country’s business climate, boosted by brighter views on the outlook in the construction and service industries.

In January 2016, the total business climate indicator increased by 0.6 percentage points compared to December 2015, the NSI said on January 28.

The NSI customarily seeks out opinions among managers in four categories of sector – industry, construction, retail and the service sector.

In “industry”, views were largely unchanged from those in December 2015. However, managers expectations about the outlook for the next three months were “more moderate”.
