Experience PMR


In the years preceding the global economic crisis, Bulgaria was one of the most attractive Central and Eastern European destinations for foreign investors. The strong position of the country was confirmed by the fact that Bulgaria received the highest level of foreign direct investments (as a percentage of GDP) of all Eastern European countries In according to the World Bank. The Bulgarian market also features the lowest labour costs in the region and a favourable legal environment.
