Bulgaria can attract French business partners with its capacities in the production of rose products, wines and cheeses, according to Bulgarian Minister of Agriculture Miroslav Naydenov.

Saturday Naydenov is in Paris to open Bulgaria's first-time booth at the International Agricultural Show (Salon International de l'Agriculture 2011).

Bulgaria's booth includes the country's strongest companies in the fields of meat and dairy production, winery, apiary and cosmetics, in particular rose etheric oil products.

The Bulgarian Minister of Agriculture was provocative in stating that Bulgaria has a very good position in attracting business attention precisely in fields such as cosmetics, winery and diary production, in which France is traditionally strong.

At the same time, Naydenov stressed that Bulgaria has to put more efforts in developing its potential in the agriculture sector, which has been neglected in previous years.

The Paris International Agricultural Show is one of the world's most high-profile fairs in the field, and its opening Saturday was attended by a number of international and local government representatives, including French President Nicholas Sarkozy.

"The Bulgarian Rose Oil and Honey is the finest in the world."

You must be kidding. I found rarely honey of a poorer quality than the Bulgarian one.

Time has come to establish a quality definition for Bulgarian agricultural products with a agro-ecological definition.

The French Institute of Rennes should work closely with the Shuman Institute whereby meat and cheese products can receive the high technological support from France for Bulgarian products meet the strict guidelines of Europe.

Let us not forget the importance of marketing the Bulgarian special agro-ecological quality that Bulgaria has to offer.

The Bulgarian Rose Oil and Honey is the finest in the world.

If you know any French people you know that you will need much more than Roses and Cheese. Don't trust the French. http://67-42-88-178.tukw.qwest.net/1022.htm

The minister forgets that several French business have already tried this, and ran away as fast as they could when they found out about the corruption and legal instability in the country. Who would even think of setting up an a wine/alcohol business, knowing that the Pestera boys are around???? Why should Inbev stay in Bulgaria while - as everybody knows - Ledenika's murky business has the highest protection? Why should somebody set up a business in meat or cheese knowing that his competitors will be murky consultants of Mr. Parvanov who are acquitted for for receiving EU subsidies for non existing processing machines by a corrupt judiciary?

Minister Naydenov should organise a meeting in the Don Borisov Center of Organized Crime in Sofia instead of bringing an other shame over BG during these meetings in Paris!
