Bulgaria: Will State Funding in Bulgaria Be Enough to Win Energy Freedom? File photo, BGNES

There is a need to encourage energy liberalization in Bulgaria, particularly in the electricity market, a paper on energy reform in the country says.

"State investment may be flooding in but foreign direct investments are few and far between.

Mention is made of investment projects in the area such as the Balkan Gas Hub, which the government hopes to promote in order to turn into a center for gas distribution into Europe.
