Market Overview

Doing business in Bulgaria - Country Commercial Guide for 2016

An evolving Bulgarian marketplace is attracting American companies of all sizes in record numbers as EU and NATO membership provide many opportunities for American companies interested in Bulgaria. Bulgaria is becoming more competitive in the EU with American technology and knowledge. Some of the sectors with the most potential for American exporters include healthcare, franchising, Information and Communication technologies, energy and agriculture. EU membership means that Bulgaria will receive a substantial amount of EU funding support-some $ 16 Billion to be invested until 2020 for upgrade of the country’s economy.

The U.S. Commercial Service in Sofia can also facilitate your entry into the Bulgarian and Macedonian markets as it also serves as the regional contact point for Macedonia. Top sectors for trade and investment in Bulgaria

Here are some of our success stories:

Water Management Technologies, Inc. in Baton Rouge, LA signed a contract in December 2014, through its Bulgarian partner Coho Farm Ltd., with the Bulgarian Executive Agency for Fisheries and Aquacultures to establish the country’s first Coho salmon farm. This project will be worth about $1,000,000 for WMT. FCS Sofia coordinated with the Embassy’s Foreign Agriculture Service section to advocate for this project

Global Traffic Technologies in St. Paul, MN signed two contracts in April and July 2015 through its Bulgarian partner Lomini Ltd. to provide its traffic management system for the Burgas and Varna Municipalities’ public transit systems.  FCS worked with Ambassador Ries and officials in both municipalities to advocate for the project. These contracts will result in about $400,000 of U.S. export content.

We are a proud partner of the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria
