Regional Conference “Transparency in Government Procurement”
Transparency and E-platform Recommended for Public Procurement in Bulgaria
Transparency, lifting of the restricting procedures and launch of electronic public procurement in Bulgaria were the main recommendations of the AmCham business and diplomatic community during the conference on transparent public procurement held June 20, 2013 at the U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria. The forum was organized by AmCham Bulgaria, U.S. Commercial Service in Bulgaria with the support of Bulgaria’s Public Procurement Agency.
Dragormir Stoynev, Minister of Economy and Energy has argued that it is not normal for an EU Member State to have public procurement deals in a certain sector won by a circle of companies. The minister emphasized that it was essential to eliminate corruption in the field as public procurement was a major means of accessing financial resources in times of economic crisis.

About this forum
The forum continues a series of events presented by the AmCham and American Embassy on good governance. As the 2014-2020 EU funding cycle approaches, many companies in beneficiary countries want to know what the opportunities will be and how they will access these. The conference will not only address these issues but also will inform companies about their rights under the World Trade Organization, Government Procurement Agreement, EU directives and local laws. The interactive roundtable and panel sessions will offer attendees a chance to raise questions and exchange views.
