AmCham Bulgaria Joins the Social Impact Alliance for Central & Eastern Europe

In mid-April 2023, AmCham Bulgaria joined the Social Impact Alliance for Central & Eastern Europe, an international think tank operating in 11 countries of the CEE region. This initiative is led by Ms. Anna Korzeniewska, founder of this international think tank.

AmCham Bulgaria has become their strategic partner in Bulgaria in identifying barriers and potential incentives to a greater social engagement of business, investors, and individuals. Similar activities have already been conducted in 10 other CEE countries – Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia (more about it here).

Our Chamber helped to identify key Bulgarian stakeholders from private, public and social sector to take part in the consultation process which was conducted in April and May 2023. Thepublication of the final report which will be available in both English and Bulgarian, is scheduled for mid-June 2023.

By joining Social Impact Alliance for Central & Eastern Europe, Ivan Mihaylov, AmCham Bulgaria CEO said:

“Such an effort to map the gaps, barriers, and potential incentives for more social engagement of the business community is totally needed. I am glad that along with AmCham Slovenia, we are the next AmCham in this region that supports such an impactful and strategic initiative, that will grow the culture of philanthropy and strategic social engagement in the region.”

Think tank’s strategic legal partner in Bulgaria is DGKV Law Firm. The project is implemented with the financial support of Google.
