The national strategy for development of culture tourism is completed and will be introduced to the Council of Ministers next week.

The new was reported by the Bulgarian Economy, Energy and Tourism Minister, Traicho Traikov, who spoke Saturday during a visit to the southern resort town of Sandanski. Traikov took part in the annual meeting of the National Union of the Municipalities in the Republic of Bulgaria.

The national strategy is to be discussed by the cabinet on the day preceding the official visit to Bulgaria of Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, which is scheduled to begin on October 15.

The visit is significant for the local culture tourism because, according to Traikov, the new strategy has been developed on the basis of the Italian model. It includes a catalogue of the top 500 cultural tourist sites in Bulgaria. They will have priority in receiving funds for the construction of a modern infrastructure.
