Commenting article: GERB MP: Bulgaria May Face EU Funds Freeze worth EUR 1.5 – 3 B

Bulgaria may face an EU finds freeze worth EUR 1.5-3 B, according to Lilyana Pavlova, MP of center-right party GERB and former Regional Development Minister.

In a Thursday interview for private TV station bTV, she cautioned that after the EU funds freeze under operational programs "Environment" and "Regional Development", which had been imposed due to serious public procurement breaches, the situation was critical with operational programs "Competitiveness" and "Rural Development."

Pavlova suggested that the budget would not sustain such a measure, adding that the EU funds freeze could reach a total of EUR 3 B, equal to the new loan that the socialist-led government was preparing to take.
