Interview with Marco Montecchi, Chair of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria, for the "International Survey: Bulgaria-Italy".
How did the economic and financial crisis impact the trade and business relations between Bulgaria and Italy?...
Unfortunately, even though I did not want to do that, just like other entrepreneurs, I had to look for opportunities in other countries such as Romania and Serbia – which right now have the "European desire" to be part of the free market. I have been forced to reduce to a minimum my activities in Bulgaria but sooner or later I will come back to restore all of them!
This statement has not come via Wikileaks but from the “ horses mouth” and is an condemnation of how Bulgaria treats foreign investors and entrepreneurs… like Garbage !!
Harsh words from the Italian.
I don't understand, why he is blaming the current government. A lot of things have improved lately.
Anyway, Bulgaria is Bulgaria.
Sometimes, there will be sand in the machinery. But never more, than a bottle of single malt whisky cannot wash away.
Civil servants as obstacles?
Well, hire a civil servant with key position related to the case as a consultant for a minor fee and, nama problemi.
I'm not talking about bribing, just synergy. Mutual understanding and learning.
Its not so bad, as long as your business rolls on in a cost effecient way with a minimum of paper work and, as long as people don't fight in the streets.
