AmCham and Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Discuss Rule of Law Reforms Initiatives

On December 21, 2023, AmCham Bulgaria had the opportunity to present its Rule of Law White Paper to the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) for professional discussion and debate on the necessary reforms to improve the business environment in Bulgaria.

At the constructive meeting, AmCham presented a resume of the Rule of Law White Paper, an ongoing and strategic project of the Rule of Law and Legislative Reform Committee since 2023. Out of the wide range of problem areas, our experts focused on some improvement suggestions. 

The scope of the report includes four areas:
  • Criminal Justice.
  • Administrative Justice.
  • Protection of private property and confiscation law and practice.
  • State fees in civil cases.

By meeting with BCCI, AmCham has started its series of discussions to present the analysis, to receive feedback, and to get support for their further recognition by various stakeholders. The report was sent to the members of AmCham for their input, and it will be presented before them on January 16, 2024. The location will be further defined. On the very next day, it will be presented in public at a press conference at the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA). Meanwhile, the paper was sent to the Association of Employers’ Organizations in Bulgaria (AOBR).
