Bulgaria's FM: Prejudice against TTIP Should Be Overcome
There are "many lies and mythology" about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), Bulgarian Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov warned on Monday.
He also pointed to TTIP as a key element of the EU-US relationship, in the eve of a new round of negotiations over the document which is designed to liberalize trade between the bloc and the United States. The 11th round of talks is scheduled for later this month.
At an international conference dedicated to the 20th anniversary since the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria (AmCham) was founded, Mitov said the "strengthening of the Transatlantic bonds" is essential at a time when there is "desire that it should be broken or at least undermined".
"We should do everything to strengthen it, and to this regard [TTIP] might play a key role. Of course we should do it in a way that it is of use to everyone and convince our citizens it is useful and will only bring about benefit to businesses," the Bulgarian National Radio quoted him as saying.
