Bulgaria, EU & The Western Balkans

As the current chairman of the EU Council of Ministers, Bulgaria's top priority is the accelerated integration of the Western Balkan countries into the EU. What the first 10 years as EU member brought to us and what are the current major challenges facing the country and the region.

Tourism, Nature and the Challenges of Sustainable Development

Climate Change is real and it brings new and important challenges to sustainable development of tourism-centric regions - new and old. How can we develop and sustain this industry in harmony with nature and local residents.

Rose Oil Production – Tradition vs Modern Times

Over 60 years of tradition and know-how in essential oils and natural extracts production has been upgraded with modern production equipment and facilities. Bulgaria is still the world's leading supplier of the cosmetics industry.
