There is a final agreement on the indicative program, which is prepared entirely on the basis of feedback from the business. „We do not make any suggestions on it. But about the trade missions we have turned things around and want to show the Bulgarian business some different markets and destinations than usual.“ The Executive Director of BSMEPA added that these markets have huge potential.

On the meeting were also presented the opportunities opened up to the companies, the OPIC voucher schemes and the National Innovation Fund.
