Bulgaria Strives to Simplify the Process for Highly Qualified Foreign Specialists


As part of efforts to bring to the country a larger number of highly qualified foreign specialists, authorities in Bulgaria are working together in order to facilitate this process.

Besides, four ministries, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, of Labor and Social Policy, as well as of Foreign Affairs and of Innovation and Growth, have intensified their efforts to make this process easier.

Such an announcement has been confirmed by Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Nikolay Denkov at the “Opportunities for the labour market in North-Eastern Bulgaria”, held in Shumen.

Bulgarian PM said that highly qualified specialists from other countries can accelerate the development of high-tech productions as well as increase their efficiency, stressing that this could lead to a surge in wages in this Balkan country.

 “No matter how many personnel we attract from abroad, if incomes in Bulgaria remain low, they will look for opportunities for realisation in other countries. That’s why our main priorities are raising qualifications, developing high-tech business, attracting Bulgarians from abroad because we all want to live well in our country,” Denkov pointed out.

In this forum also participated Ministers of Labor and Social Policy, Ivanka Shalapatova of Education and Science, Galin Tsokov, of Economy and Industry, Bogdan Bogdanov, as well as of Innovation and Growth Milena Stoycheva.

The Minister of Economy and Industry Bogdan Bogdanov said that the long-term solution to the shortage of personnel problem is another development of human potential in this country through retaining programs as well as dual training.

At the same time, the Minister of Education and Science, Galin Tsokov, has considered that one of the most successful programs is Student Internships.

“In the new program period of the ‘Education’ program, it will be awarded another module – for dual studies in higher education. It will enable student training and science research to be integrated with business development,” the minister pointed out.

The Minister of Innovation and Growth, Milena Stoycheva, said that among the top priorities of this ministry is building several innovation valleys in Bulgaria. Besides, Stoycheva stressed that all contracts with the approved companies that filed an application following the procedures of the Recovery and Sustainability Plan have already been concluded.

Furthermore, the Minister noted that 221 companies from North-Eastern Bulgaria receive over BGN 4 million for their projects under the “ICT and cyber security” procedure. She stressed that 101 companies from the region have been approved under the “Technological Modernization” procedure while emphasising that about BGN 24 million will be distributed between them.
