Bulgaria: Today's Quote: Bulgaria Becoming Tiny

"Our scientists and thinkers often gain recognition in "big countries" abroad, but our homeland is too tiny sometimes to even give them a diploma. 
Bulgaria is not small, but is turning small, since it does not give value to what it has at disposal - its talented people."
Bulgarian journalist Dimitar Sabev comments on long-standing government policies in Bulgaria showing its "small-state" mentality in an article for Tema weekly magazine.
The UN describes as "small" a country whose population number below 1.5 million people, while Bulgaria is estimated to have more than 7 million. However, this number has been shrinking at a staggering rate since early in the 1990s, with hundreds of thousands leaving in search of better opportunities abroad.
