Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic spoke today with the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria Ms. Mariana Nikolova. The topic of the meeting was creating conditions for the improvement of, first of all, economic cooperation, but also the possibilities for establishing closer links in science, education and culture. The companies Nis Brewery and Trace, owned by Bulgarian companies, have been prominent and have been working successfully for many years, as well as numerous firms with developed businesses in the neighboring country. Mayor Bulatovic presented to the Deputy Prime Minister of Bulgaria the infrastructure projects that were being implemented in this area, highlighting the completion of the highway and electrification of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway line which was of importance to both countries. “I am proud that more and more tourists from neighboring Bulgaria are coming to Nis each year and I would like to extend this successful cooperation in tourism to all other fields, primarily through the cooperation of small and medium-sized enterprises that are currently the most important, “said the Mayor of Nis. The Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister stressed her readiness to organize, perhaps in Nis, a Serbian-Bulgarian Business Forum that would bring together businessmen and economists from two countries and represent the opportunity for new business operations and the arrival of new investors. The meeting was also attended by the Ambassador of Bulgaria in Belgrade Mr. Radko Vlajkov, the director of Regional Chamber of Commerce Nis Mr. Aleksandar Milicevic as well as a number of businessmen from this area who have long-term business cooperation with Bulgarian companies.
