Bulgaria to become an ICT hub in Europe


According to the president of Bulgaria, Rosen Plevneliev, Bulgaria can become an ‘engine’ and a regional information and communications technology hub in Europe.

“We see ICT clusters as an important part of the development of the Bulgarian economy,” said Plevneliev during a meeting with the European Commission Vice-Precident for the Digital Single Market, Andrus Ansip on Monaday, April 21.

During the meeting with Ansip, the president of Bulgaria mentioned the great progress of the Bulgarian ICT industry and mentioned Sofia’s third ranking in top European destinations for start-ups.

According to an article by Novinite.bg, “Plevneliev suggested that the development of the Single Digital Market would benefit both EU citizens and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), adding that SMEs would get easier access not only to the digital market but also to high-quality administrative service.” Plevneliev went on and explained that the Bulgarian authorities are working on developing a model that will bring all administrative services into one single electronic platform.

 “In physical terms the EU has a Single Market but in digital terms there are 28 small markets with different regulatory policies and this creates barriers,” Ansip said.
