Italian Companies Eye Investment Opportunities in Bulgaria
A number of Italian companies have studied investment opportunities in Bulgaria. “Bulgaria is among the most favorable countries for Italian companies, which want to expand their business in the attractive Balkan region. With a population totaling 54 million people, expected GDP of the region in the amount of 238 billion euro for 2012 and an estimated average GDP growth of 3.5% over the next few years, the Balkan countries appear to be the heart of New Europe.
This became clear from a statement of Mrs. Andrea Casini, Unicredit Bulbank COO and Deputy Chairperson of the Board, delivered on the sideline of a conference on the investment opportunities that the Balkan region could offer to the Italian business, held in the city of Milan.
