BCCI and the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce and Industry maintain active contacts despite the complicated situation in the region

The Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, together with the Commercial Service at the Bulgarian Embassy in Israel and the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce and Industry, held an online meeting on the topic of "Bulgaria-Israel: opportunities for business cooperation". The aim was to present the opportunities for trade, import and export between the two countries, with a focus on the import conditions in Israel, as well as on the production and export potential of specific sectors in Bulgaria.

The meeting was opened by BCCI President Tsvetan Simeonov, who said that despite the complicated situation in the region, the two business organisations do not stop their efforts to improve trade and economic relations between the two countries. "The official statistics on the exchange of goods between Bulgaria and Israel make us improve these figures even more," Simeonov said. Traditionally, the two countries are good partners and have no open issues to resolve. In the past years, Bulgaria's export has been stable. The import from Israel shows potential for growth and the aim is to balance bilateral trade.

Sarit Fischbein, Director of the International Department, said some words of welcome to the participants from the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce and Industry. She outlined the economic situation in this country and noted that after the USA, the European Union, as a whole, is a main trading partner for Israel.
