Bulgaria wants to change the emphasis of its exports from raw materials such as grain and lumber to processed goods, it emerged at a meeting between Agriculture Minister Miroslav Naidenov and representatives of the Confederation of Employers and Industrialists and Bulgaria (CEIBG).
 
This is envisaged in Bulgaria’s national export strategy, which was discussed with CEIBG.
 
Naidenov said that exports of processed goods would increase revenue from value-added tax, while there should be additional impetus for vegetable-growing, stock breeding and other traditional export sectors.
 
CEIBG chairman Ognyan Donev was quoted by mass-circulation daily 24 Chassa as saying that the confederation would work with government officials on developing the national export strategy.
 
The confederation already has its own export association, which was set up at the suggestion of Postbank, the report said.
