Kristalina Georgieva's promotion to the position of EU Commission Vice President for Budget and Human Resources shows the exceptional appreciation for her professionalism, President Plevneliev has said.

In a statement to the media, he has noted Georgieva had been conferred "one of the most important portfolios at the [European] Commission".

He has reminded her reputation her "indisputable" and has voiced his confidence that she will be "very useful to United Europe", with results of her work to gain recognition within the bloc and abroad.

Plevneliev has described the office Bulgaria received in the Commission as "a huge success" which will push the country's profile higher on the European scene and will deepen processes of integration.

Prime Minister Georgi Bliznashki has also commented on EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker's choice to pick Georgieva as one of the seven Vice Presidents, describing the event as "having surpassed all our expectations".

In Bliznashki's view, "being a Commissioner, she will work for the benefit of the EU as a whole, but as Bulgarians we cannot help rejoicing that she has been granted such recognition."

Bulgaria will "cooperate" so that Georgieva could carry out all her functions, the Prime Minister has pointed out.
