Positive FT coverage for Bulgaria

More positive news: today the Financial Times has a largely upbeat four page supplement on Bulgaria, and is also running a conference in London “Investing in Bulgaria”.

Compare what is happening in Bulgaria with the state of affairs in countries around it… and one phrase recurs: “We are”, says the country’s president, Rosen Plevneliev, “an absolute island of stability”.

The FT supplement’s top story continues: “The claim, repeated by many senior Bulgarians, has substance. Though the economy shrank by 5.5 per cent in the 2009 global recession, unlike neighbouring Serbia, Romania and Greece, Bulgaria required no international bailout. It has since had 13 consecutive quarters of growth, even if this has been anaemic.

“With among the lowest budget deficit and government debt figures in the European Union, it is one of only three countries, alongside Finland and Denmark, that fully meet the Maastricht criteria for euro membership.”
