Bulgaria: Heavy Rains Will Not Affect Bulgaria's Tourism – Expert Photo by BGNES.

The 4.5-5.5% tourism growth planned for 2014 is currently implemented, Anelia Genova of Bulgaria's Ministry of Economy told the National Radio (BNR).

According to Genova, despite the heavy rainfalls and the crisis on some markets essential for the country, the tourist data for Bulgaria is quite optimistic.

The Ministry of Economy focuses not only on the number of tourists in Bulgaria, but also on the amounts of cash they spend during their stay, BNR informs.

Meanwhile, Bayko Baykov, chair of the Association of Bulgarian Tour Operators and Travel Agents has claimed that the current situation regarding the foreign tourists in the country is contradictory. According to him, this is due mainly to the unstable political situation in Ukraine and in Russia, and the depreciation of the ruble. This in turn has had an impact on the number of tourists, Baykov noted in an interview for Bulgarian Dnevnik.

A slight decline is expected as a result of the lower numbers of Bulgarian tourists, which in turn is due to the bad weather, Baykov explained.

The reins will affect the income from tourism!
The poor crops will affect the incomes!

The crimes against the people of Bulgaria done with the active pressure from EU will affect the income!!

Because we cant pay easily for 15 000 000 000 worth photovoltaic "investments""!!!!

The destabilization of the country done by the Turkish secret survase and the George Soros neo-liberal networks, and the USA government will affect the economy...
.( the South Stream project was the reason and trigger for this)

So we are really in a difficult situation and the constant sucking of works force by the EU policies will worsen it ..

So we will be in a more difficult situation..
The EU prove to be effective only when sucking and looting take place..... not very good at rebuilding .. not for Bulgaria for sure..
otherwise the larger EU economies and the multinationals did well in Bulgaria...

but for the price of permanently harming this country...

so this is the reality
