Bulgaria may increase the export of white brined cheese, yellow cheese and wine to Syria. This became clear after the meeting between Bulgarian Economy Minister Traycho Traykov and his Syrian counterpart, Ms. Lamia Asi. Today, the two ministers are scheduled to open a Bulgarian-Syrian forum in Sofia with the participation of over 35 Syrian and sixty Bulgarian companies. The forum is part of the two day visit of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad in Sofia.

Syrian companies have shown interest in the realization of industrial and agricultural projects in Bulgaria, as well as in the construction of hotels, residential complexes, spa centers and golf courses.
