According to her, collaboration for 3 decades has succeeded in becoming one of the most significant organizations of strategic importance. She explained that the Presidency is being handed over every six months. We have delivered it to neighboring Greece today. Minister Zaharieva noted that the main debated topics during the meeting were three: environment, culture and transport.
“The one that most closely links us is precisely the desire of the political leadership to make culture with a stronger connection,” she added, recalling that during the Bulgarian presidency the meeting of the Ministers of Culture was held.
