(ANSA) - UDINE, 17 MAG - The aim of the business mission to Sofia and Plovdiv, in which a delegation of the Young Entrepreneurs Group of Confindustria Udine took part, was to get to know the investment and cooperation opportunities in Bulgaria. And the mission, Confindustria reported in a statement, "fully achieved its objective considering the high quality of the institutional and economic meetings held, and as it was the first time that a group of young entrepreneurs from Italy visited their counterparts in Bulgaria, the three-day event represented a significant moment for the entire Italian system." The mission program started with the 'Country Presentation' held at the UniCredit Bulbank International Center in Sofia.

After the initial welcome greetings by Andrea Contò, president of GGI Bulgaria, Giovanni Martinelli, vice-president of Confindustria Bulgaria, Giuseppina Zarra, ambassador of Italy in Sofia, and Luca Pangaro, advisor of GGI in Udine, speeches followed to describe to Italian entrepreneurs the development opportunities for businesses that the country offers. The meeting then continued with several B2Bs in which some 60 companies participated. The following day, the Udine GGI delegation moved to the industrial area of Plovdiv for company visits to Kuminiano Fruit-Gruppo Santorelli and Bullteck.

Italy's ambassador to Sofia, Giuseppina Zarra, received the two Young Entrepreneurs Groups from Bulgaria and Udine. During the meeting, she presented investment opportunities in Bulgaria, outlining the political and economic situation in the country and emphasizing the excellent bilateral relations between Italy and Bulgaria. She then recalled the well-established Italian presence in Bulgaria, highlighting the growth in the number of companies with Italian participation, which in August 2022 reached more than 13,000 companies compared to 12,000 in 2021.

The ambassador pointed out that the Unicredit Group has just signed an agreement with the European Investment Fund, which has granted two guarantees worth 370 million euros to promote investments by SMEs in seven European countries, including Bulgaria. (ANSA).
