The next European Commission report on Bulgaria's progress will be issued in about a year, the EU executive has decided on Wednesday morning, its spokesman confirmed.

“The European Commission felt that it was important to have this longer time frame,” Mark Gray, a spokesman for the European Commission, said at a press conference in Brussels on Wednesday.

The European Commission's monitoring report on Bulgaria, issued on Wednesday, covers for the first time a one-year period in which three governments have succeeded.

Normally the reports on the country's progress under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM) cover a 6-month period.

According to the Commission this very often does not lead to good results as governments are tempted to go for shot-term actions, Mark Gray added.
