Bulgaria's caretaker Prime Minister, Marin Raykov, is going to ask the business to show solidarity in very difficult for the Bulgarian people times.

Raykov spoke Thursday after his meeting with right-wing politicians Ivan Kostov and Martin Dimitrov, who were Chairs of the Blue Coalition in the now-dissolved Parliament.

According to him, the Bulgarian business must show it is nationally responsible and a legitimate social partner, Standard news writes.

The PM has stressed companies can use different approaches to assist the most disadvantaged people, explaining he planned to launch a series of consultations with industrials to discuss how they can help.

"The caretaker government would not limit itself to just seeking reserves in the budget," he said.

Kostov has requested concrete measures to handle the suffocating poverty, leading Bulgarians to despair.

Dimitrov has noted that government support for small and medium businesses was also crucial for the moment with the State reimbursing Value Added Tax, VAT, in a timely manner and halting "white-collar racket."

Both have joined in voicing their outrage from the Commission for Protection of Competition stating Wednesday that listing monopolies and cartels was none of their business.

They have insisted before the PM and his ministers that they must continue to inform the Commission about cartel violations such as in the trade and retail sale of medications. Raykov has pledged to do so and to relentlessly seek answers.
