The Information Centre will provide preliminary information on study opportunities at higher education institutions in Bulgaria. The opening was attended by the chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Education and Science, Krasimir Velchev, representatives of the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science, rectors and directors from nine Bulgarian universities from across the country.

In June 2024, a similar centre will be opened in Bulgaria, which will present the opportunities offered by higher education institutions in Morocco, Gabriel said at the ceremony.
Earlier in the day, at a joint press conference with Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, Gabriel highlighted the great potential that relations between the two countries have. She pointed specifically to education as one of the promising areas.
