Bulgaria: Czech Republic to Have Honorary Consulate in Bulgaria's Plovdiv

The Bulgarian government has approved a request from the Czech Republic to open an honorary consulate in Plovdiv, the cabinet's press office has said.

It has also proposed Ivan Sokolov as Prague's honorary consul to Plovdiv.

The Czech Republic has made the request citing willingness to deepen ties at a regional level and its plans to expand its network of diplomatic missions and boost its consular services.

Plovdiv, Bulgaria's second-largest city, “has been chosen as one of the most significant cultural and economic centers of Bulgaria, and the expectation of the Czech and the Bulgarian side is that the honorary consul will work in support of economic and trade cooperation and will contribute to cultural exchange,” the government adds.

In  2019, Plovdiv will also be a European Capital of Culture alongside Matera (Italy).
