Bulgaria: Bulgaria Lagging Behind in Education - WEF

Economic growth is slower than pre-crisis rates, and unemployment is higher all across the EU, and the union should put in more effort into bringing all member states to similar levels, Galvan told the Bulgarian National Radio in an interview aired Saturday.
