We have proved that Bulgaria is one of the best places for investment in EU. Simeonov emphasized: “We offer favorable conditions for investors”.

The forum, organized by the Executive Agency for Promotion of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, aims to create stable business contacts between the two countries, said Lilia Ivanova, Deputy Minister of Economy at the opening of the event. She informed that a joint venture promotion and protection agreement was being worked out between Bulgaria and Saudi Arabia. The institutionalization of a joint intergovernmental commission is also being finalized. According to the Ministry of Economy, the growth of the Bulgarian export to Saudi Arabia for the first half of this year is over 60%.

The President of the Council of the Saudi Chambers, Dr. Sami  Al-Abidi, expressed appreciation for the efforts related to the promotion of the economic and business cooperation between the two countries. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is also willing to participate in investment cooperation. Bulgaria's geographical position puts it in a favorable position to attract Saudi investments, he said.
