"Even greater deepening of Bulgarian-American trade and economic relations will be important in the period of economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic," Borissov said during a meeting with Matthew Boyce. He pointed out that Bulgaria and the United States are allies and strategic partners and cooperation is extremely broad both on a bilateral basis and within NATO and the EU-US.

Prime Minister Borissov praised the first session of the Bulgaria-US Strategic Dialogue held in Sofia in January. Borissov added that it is very important to maintain the positive trend for sustainable growth of bilateral trade between Bulgaria and the United States, as well as to attract new US direct investment. There is significant potential for this in the high-tech sectors, outsourcing, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering.

The meeting also discussed other topics in the fields of energy, security and defense./BNT
