The priorities of the parties for the year will be reviewed at the meetings, the presidential press service informs.

Among the topics discussed at the meetings will be the current political situation in the country and perspectives.

The participants in the consultations will also focus on measures aimed at continuing reforms in the fields of judiciary and internal order; fight against corruption; administrative reform and electronic governance; healthcare; education; pension reform and water sector reform.

They will also discuss measures towards implementation of the strategic goals and priorities set out in the national programme for development “Bulgaria 2020” and will begin preparations for its successor “Bulgaria 2030”.
