November 8 - November 10
ACEBA’s first Business Mission to Bulgaria aims to bring U.S. executives to Sofia for direct discussion with government leaders. These intimate discussions afford corporate executives and government policy makers the opportunity to discuss investments, trade, and market access concerns. This mission is crucial to the continued development of American-Bulgarian economic relations, as the last business mission to Bulgaria was 14 years ago.
The Business Mission will be comprised of four components:
- full-group meetings with the President, Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, and Economy Minister
- individual meetings between each company and Ministers directly relevant to its industry (two each)
- a reception with Bulgarian government officials and representatives from business at the U.S. Ambassador’s Residence; and
- a Defense forum with the Minister of Defense, Bulgarian defense partners, and U.S. defense companies.
This proposal follows the model of ACEBA’s highly successful business missions that have been implemented in other countries in the region, including Poland, Romania, Lithuania, and Hungary.
