Former US President Bill Clinton wants to help Bulgaria have a more prominent presence in American business and society, Bulgaria’s President Roumen Radev said after meeting him in New York City.

In return, Radev wants to create the right conditions for American businesses in Bulgaria. He said that there was a difference between “the extremely good level of bilateral co-operation and the lack of a presence of US businesses in Bulgaria”.

“Bulgaria can attract many more US investors, but in order to do this, we need to do our homework. The fight against corruption must be really uncompromising,” Radev said after the meeting with Clinton. He indicated that fight was a condition for investor confidence.

Radev has invited Clinton to visit Bulgaria again and deliver to a speech in front of Bulgarian students. So far, President Clinton has visited Bulgaria once, in 1999, when he was still in office.
