The headquarters of Bulgaria's future National Medication Council will be in the northern city of Pleven, Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, announced Monday.

He grounded the decision on the fact the city has a medical university, good hospitals, and highly qualified healthcare professionals.

Last week, the Parliament decided to establish a National Council on Prices and Reimbursement of Medication Products with the statute of a State Commission. At the beginning of July, the cabinet adopted amendments in the Human Medicine Medications Act, which provided for the establishment of such Council.

Borisov further informed Monday that about 30 people will be employed by the Commission with an average monthly salary of BGN 2 000 each. Until now, the Commission did not have its own administration and was not a permanent body.

Borisov, together with Regional Minister, Lilyana Pavlova, and Transport Minister, Ivaylo Moskovski, was in Pleven to open new facilities financed with over BGN 7 M from the EU Operational Program Regional Development.

Last Monday, the Tourism Directorate of the Ministry of Economy and Energy became the first State institution to move from the capital Sofia to the second largest city of Plovdiv under the relocation plan of Borisov's Deputy, Finance Minister, Simeon Djankov.
