Salaries in Bulgaria are set to grow with around 4% or a little above, according to data presented at an HR forum in Sofia

A gap in the rate of payment between Sofia and larger cities on the one hand, and smaller towns on the other, is set to be preserved and even deepen.

According to the data, the pharmaceutical business in Bulgaria is among the most balanced in terms of balance between expected and real growth in wages - 6.2% against 7.1%.

On the other hand, the services sector has marked the highest salary growth - 9%.
