Bulgaria: Bulgarian-Ukrainian Business Forum with Bilateral Meetings: April 25, 2024, Vasil Levski Hall, Hyatt Regency Sofia Hotel

According to data from the National Statistical Institute, for 2023, the bilateral trade between Bulgaria and Ukraine exceeded USD 1 billion. dollars, but there is a decrease of 14.3%, compared to the realized during the same period of the previous year.

Topics related to post-war reconstruction and the opportunities that European funds will provide to Ukraine for the reconstruction of the economy and infrastructure will be discussed before the Bulgarian business. The geographical proximity of our two countries through the Black Sea, as well as cultural and historical features provide an excellent opportunity to build lasting partnerships, expand traditionally good cooperation and create successful joint businesses.

The business forum will provide an opportunity for representatives of Bulgarian enterprises from the ICT sectors, including fintech and modern technologies, energy, food industry and agriculture, logistics and infrastructure to meet new potential partners, as well as to make direct contacts with enterprises from Ukraine.
