Sheraton Sofia Hotel Balkan
The British Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce was among the selected partners of a high-level summit organised by The Economist in Sofia on 17th and 18th October 2013.
The Economist Events have selected Bulgaria to be the host country for this major conference at a time when the EU is faced with the challenge of how to emerge stronger from the economic crisis.
Cabinet ministers from the Balkan countries, leading economists and senior fellows from top financial and academic institutions gathered together to brainstorm and share insights with decision-makers from politics and business on how the new political, financial and business landscape in the Balkan region will re-shape itself and how their Governments will manage to put them back on the road to economic recovery and growth.
Speakers from the Bulgarian state institutions included:
Plamen Oresharski, Prime Minister of Bulgaria
Daniela Bobeva, Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Development
Dragomir Stoynev, Minister of Economy and Energy
Rosen Plevneliev, President of Bulgaria - Guest of Honour and Keynote Speaker at the Gala Dinner on 17th October 2013
