Facts

Economy
Rapid industrialization under Communist rule; minerals and manufacturing are important. Essential economic reforms begun in 1997 stabilized the economy. Mass privatization and foreign investment in real estate, tourism, IT and communication changed the Bulgarian economy and labour market. High unemployment in rural areas led to over 200,000 emigrating to seek jobs. Reforms in education, healthcare and regional development are the greatest challenges. Poor public administration, corruption and strong organized crime networks obstruct progress.
