Over the past year the business has shown stable and sustainable results, despite the trade disputes in the global economy. Today, circular economy and digitalization of the activity are high on the companies’ agenda. In order for them to be sustainable and competitive in the market, companies must continue to work towards the implementation of innovation and green policies.
Bulgarian exports have reached record levels. Despite the expected worsening and slowing down of the Bulgarian and world economies, our country shows good tendencies of maintaining and improving its main macro indicators, which is also due to the growing domestic demand.
The Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is issuing certificates to the ranked companies in “TOP 100” and “TOP 1500+” and thus provides an objective assessment of their work as part of the leading companies in Bulgaria.
