BGN 611 million invested in Bojurishte industrial zone in a decade
In the past decade Bulgarian and foreign companies have invested a total of BGN 611 million in the Sofia-Bojurishte Industrial Zone, said caretaker Economy Minister Nikola Stoyanov. In 2022 in addition to Transpress, another 11 companies invested some BGN 100 million in the zone. "These numbers show that the development of industrial parks in Bulgaria is in the right direction to attract investments and this bears good results," said Minister Stoyanov.
Under the National Recovery and Resilience BGN 200 million have been set aside for industrial parks, recalled Stoyanov. The Ministry's team believes that this amount may be increased by tapping operational programmes and the Bulgarian Development Bank.
