Sale of Navigation Maritime Bulgare Approved by Privatization Agency
In mid May the Agency and the buyer, the Bulgarian-German consortium KG Maritime Shipping, signed the agreement of the sale of the state-owned company for a total of BGN 440,1 M.

The consortium has committed to maintain a staff of 2851 persons for Navigation Maritime Bulgare in the first year, 2594 persons for the second year, and 2360 persons between the third and the tenth year of its program.
The buyer also plans to acquire 25 new ships in order to replace older with newer and bigger ones.
