The EIB has worked with Bulgaria since 1992. We reduced regional disparities and increased competitiveness. The Bank financed major roads and the expansion of Sofia airport. We helped Sofia develop an integrated waste management system that contributes to the circular economy, reduces greenhouse gases and produces renewable energy. We invested in high-tech sunflower oil facilities, so Bulgarian sunflower oil can be processed at home, creating jobs and growth.
