Bulgaria sees slight increase in business climate confidence – poll

A regular poll by Bulgaria’s National Statistical Institute has found that in February 2016, the total business climate indicator increased by 0.5 percentage points compared to January, pushed up by increased optimism in industry, the retail trade and service sector.

The industry business climate indicator was 1.2 percentage points higher in February than in January, the NSI said.

However, in the construction sector, the business climate was down by 3.5 percentage points, with managers more pessimistic about the current business situation of their enterprises, even though their outlook on the six months was more favourable.
