Since 2021, the Bulgarian – Swiss Chamber of Commerce, the German-Bulgarian Industry and Trade Chamber, and the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria have been advocating for the need for a neutral platform for policy discussion to the Ministry of Healthcare.

Over the past couple of months, we have restarted this great initiative and have decided to organize a strategic conference on the Bulgarian Healthcare System improvement. Last week we invited the Parliament Healthcare Committee Chair who expressed his willingness to support the event.

The conference will take place at Grand Hotel Millennium Sofia, Shakespeare Hall, Fl. 4
