Bulgaria-Turkey Traffic Agreement Remains in Discussion
The new agreement between Bulgaria and Turkey regarding the freight carrier permits will be signed after it is discussed with all concerned parties.
Bulgaria's Transport Minister Danail Papazov told Focus agency that the new license regime can be adopted only after it is agreed by the representatives of the sector.
Late on Monday, after long negotiations, Bulgaria and Turkey's Transport Ministers reached an agreement for the liberalization of freight transport between the countries.
Throughout last week, a number of checkpoints on the Bulgarian-Turkish border remained blocked by long lines of trucks, following a permit dispute.
Papazov outlined that one of the key points in the new agreement will include an increased quota (by 5,000-6,000) for Bulgarian freight carriers to third countries. The mechanism for permits will also be facilitated by a new electronic barcode system.
