VP Iotova Meets Bulgarians in Denmark

“To see Bulgaria a secure and stable place in the currently unstable world, a place that expects you, your children and your parents is a basic aim for us with President Rumen Radev,” Vice President Iliana Iotova said, addressing Bulgarians living in Denmark. Young people planning to return to Bulgaria also took part in the three-hour meeting, which focused on the political and economic situation in Bulgaria and the need of state policy for the Bulgarians abroad.
Official data show that nearly 11,500 currently live in Denmark, many of them highly qualified specialists. 
They confided that they encountered a number of administrative issues when in Bulgaria, one of the reasons being the lack of e-government in the country.
In Iotova’s opinion, a real policy for Bulgarians abroad has been sorely lacking for years.
The need of institutionalizing the representation of Bulgarian communities abroad was discussed, as it will solve part of the problems Bulgarians abroad meet in the countries where they live.
Later, she unveiled the In the Square of Another Bulgaria 8th Folk Fest in Copenhagen and joined the longest horo chain dance. Twenty-eight formations from different countries are participating, making up for hundreds of lovers of the traditional Bulgarian dance.
Before that, Bulgaria’s Ambassador to Denmark, Svetlan Stoev, expressed gratitude to the Vice President for visiting the Bulgarian community in the kingdom. Bulgarian New Agency Director General Kiril Valchev also attended the event.
