AmCham Business Breakfast with H.E. Herro Mustafa, U.S. Ambassador to Bulgaria
AmCham Bulgaria Welcomed the U.S. Ambassador H.E. Herro Mustafa
On November 22nd the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria welcomed the U.S. Ambassador to Bulgaria H.E. Herro Mustafa. It happened at the traditional Business Breakfast, organized by the Chamber each time a new ambassador arrives in Bulgaria.
“I want to congratulate AmCham for a very successful year. We know that Bulgaria and the United States grow stronger together through business-to-business connections. President Olivier Marquette and Executive Director Petar Ivanov – your vision and leadership, combined with the AmCham Board, are a role model for other AmChams around the world,” said Ambassador Mustafa in her opening remarks.
During the event Ambassador Mustafa presented her priorities and vision in the next three years of her term. Among them are energy security, rule of law, as well her “Three Cs”: connectivity, collaboration and (fighting) corruption.
“Unlocking the full potential of the U.S.-Bulgarian economic relationship requires a fertile ground. It requires an improvement in the investment climate, in regulatory predictability, in tender procedures, and in the reliability of the judicial system. It requires a free, dynamic, and vibrant media that closely watches over all of these processes, forcing all actors – private and governmental – to play fairly and responsibly.”
On behalf of AmCham Olivier Marquette greeted Ambassador Mustafa saying: “Madam Ambassador, we are delighted to be here with us and to share your views and vision for your mandate. Now AmCham is focused on 4 key priorities which guide pretty much all our activities: Sustainable business climate, including rule of law and investment climate; Transatlantic cooperation on strategic matters, including energy security and defense; Innovation and startups; Education. I would also like to highlight here the importance and the need of a strong Health Care System too.”
