"Business for Plovdiv" and "British-Bulgarian Business Association" joint conference on the topic "Brexit and the Future of International Trade"

On October 24th, 2018, in the hall of the Plovdiv Regional History Museum, “Business for Plovdiv” and the “British-Bulgarian Business Association” held a joint conference on the topic “Brexit and the Future of International Trade”.

The conference was held under the auspices of the regional Governor of Plovdiv, Mr. Zdravko Dimitrov, and with the participation of Mr. Liam Smyth /Director of International Trade of the Association of the British Chambers of Commerce/, Mr. Stefan Stoyanov /Deputy Mayor of Plovdiv/ and Mr. Tim Bouysere /Commercial Attaché at the UK Embassy in Bulgaria/.

The event was attended by business representatives from both Plovdiv and the judiciary districts /Stara Zagora and Pazardzhik/ as well as many interested companies from Sofia.

Due to the ambiguity of the conditions in which the UK will leave the EU, much of the businessmen’s questions were left unanswered, but the hope is that soon we will have concrete solutions that will benefit trade relations between EU and the UK.
