Government Supports Businesses. How? was the topic of the online discussion, held by the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum (BBLF). As a former chairman and current board member, Maxim Behar moderated the meeting.
Special guests were the Minister of Economy Lachezar Borisov and Iliana Ilieva, General Director of the General Directorate for European Competitiveness Funds at the Ministry.
The event sparked interest and heated discussion on government measures to support business. Among the participants were CEOs and managers of over 35 BBLF member companies and partners, which are among the most successful Bulgarian and international companies in our market. The discussion was also attended by the Chairman of BBLF Levon Hampartzoumian and members of the Board.
Minister Lachezar Borisov explained the government's strategy to first support the companies most affected by COVID-19, and then the rest in need, with a little over BGN 1 billion invested so far. The second goal is to prepare for a complete restructuring of the economy, considering the changes that occurred along with the COVID crisis.
