InvestBulgaria Agency projects 400 million leva investment and creation of 6000 jobs in 2017

Bulgaria may expect to see investments of 400 milllion leva (about 204 million euro) with the potential to create 6000 jobs in 2017, according to a forecast by the state’s InvestBulgaria Agency based on applications for investor certificates.

The agency said on February 15 that interest among investments was again directed towards the country’s seven priority sectors – information and communication technology, electrical equipment and machinery, textiles and clothing, chemical products, rubber, plastics and other non-metallic mineral products, and food products.

InvestBulgaria Agency chief executive Stamen Yanev said that conditions should swiftly be created for the training of the skilled labour force that investors are looking for.

“It is people that can make a business, a system or a state more stable, more security and more attractive,” Yanev said.
