“Bulgaria has reached record export levels – for the first three months of this year, we have 9.5 percent growth in exports to the European Union and a two-digit result for exports to third countries. The state is making it all possible to become more and more competitive, “Economy Minister Emil Karanikov said in Targovishte.
