The opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party presented Saturday an ambitious program for governing the country, setting high goals in the field of the economy.

The program of the main opposition party in Bulgaria includes creating 200,000 new jobs, lowering of unemployment to no more than 8%, and raising the average wage in Bulgaria to 60% of that in the EU.

The plan also includes a number of social measures directed in three fields - labor market, retirement pensions and integration of vulnerable groups.

The socialists also vowed for stimulus measures for the Bulgarian businesses, arguing that the spending cuts of the current center-right GERB cabinet are actually a "war on business."

Leader and ex-PM Sergey Stanishev admitted that the program is ambitious, but vowed to persevere in fighting for a prosperous Bulgaria based on solidarity and social justice.
