Meetings with representatives of the Swiss business community and the Bulgarian-Swiss Chamber of Commerce (BSCC) are also on the agenda of the visit, which will take place three months after a delegation of the Bulgarian Parliament visited Berne.

The Swiss contribution to Bulgaria through the BSCP totals CHF 76 M , the Swiss Embassy said in a statement.
