Ekaterina Zaharieva: Our foreign policy must have an economic focus

The HC of Republic of Mauritius to Bulgaria, Dr Christo Iliev, as Board Member of the Association of Honorary Consuls, meet with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ekaterina Zaharieva.

At the meeting Minister Zaharieva discussed the possibilities for working together in the sphere of international and economic relations of our country. "Bulgarian foreign policy must be economically oriented. For all ambassadors, I say that our country´s economy is a top priority. This can be done through culture and tourism, which would contribute to the development of the Bulgarian business, "said our foreign minister.

Minister Zaharieva supports the idea of creation of a Honorary Consulate of Bulgaria in Mauritius as a mean of better facilitating the potential of our economies and bilateral communication.

Ekaterina Zaharieva pointed out that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is working hard to improve the visa services in order not to suffer the Bulgarian business. "We are expanding the visa centers in Russia to more than 50, in China - to over 15, in India since March we will have exported visa centers, and Vietnam is under negotiations at the moment," the minister said.

Ekaterina Zaharieva informed the leadership of the Association of Honorary Consuls that at the initiative of the Ministry in October a meeting of all Honorary Consuls representing Bulgaria will be organized. Such a forum would contribute to attracting investment to Bulgaria. "I think Honorary Consuls can do a great job and they do it. I am grateful to many honorable consuls for the support of the development of the Bulgarian business, "said Minister Zaharieva.
