Totally agree with Philippe.
Bulgaria main and only problem is that the government people in charge (not all) and the main business players (ex communists/mafia) are most incompetent probably in the whole world . No forward thinking at all, its all me me and me again.

Wishful thinking. From the 13 Billion that BG could have got in the period 2007 - 2013, 80% was never absorbed because of fraud and incompetence. Nothing has changed. Last week I received 3 inflated price offers for an investment, and it turned out that the 3 companies belonged to one and the same owner who bribed my technical manager. (who lost his job). How can Mrs. Zlatanova control all this? Why should the EU pay for Bulgaria's failing productivity and competence?
