Bulgaria offers a good platform for Lebanese companies, which want to enter EU's market, according to the Balkan country's Economy Minister Traicho Traikov.
Traikov opened a bilateral business forum for companies from the two countries in Lebanon, where a high-level Bulgarian delegation, headed by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, is currently on a visit.
Bulgaria has certain advantages as an investment destination, including the low corporate taxes and the opportunity of EU structural funds supporting the business, Traikov pointed out.
" Bulgaria's touristic sector is well developed and attractive for Lebanese tourists," according to Gaby Tamer, Vice president of Beirut and Mount Lebanon Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture.
