In Boyko Borissov’s words the portfolio held by Mariya Gabriel, who is currently in charge of digital economy and society, should be extended. Mariya Gabriel is to hold a meeting next Tuesday with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to discuss these matters, the Bulgarian Prime Minister added.
