The new Minister of Economy Lachezar Borisov discussed anti-crisis measures and measures for economic development with representatives of employers' organizations (BICA, BIA, BCCI and CEIBG). The meeting was also attended by the new Deputy Ministers of Economy, Ms. Yana Topalova and Mr. Stamen Yanev.

In order to improve the control over the transparent spending of public funds and to avoid and prevent possible corrupt practices, abuses and unregulated relations, the Ministry of Economy has developed specific measures on which almost full agreement has been reached with employers.

In this regard, it was agreed upon that the website of the Ministry publishes the full account of the achievements every two weeks, as well as sets out a special phone for signals in case of irregularities. Employers are expected to come up with concrete proposals on the controversial matters within 2-3 days, in order to reach a full consensus and launch the economic plan. "There are two packages of measures. The first are socio-economic and are worth 1 billion 162 million, financed by the central budget. The second package is of specific economic measures and is worth BGN 1.8 billion. In the near future, they will be able to increase by another BGN 400 million, which would come with EU funds, "said the Minister of Economy.
