There is a possibility that Bulgaria doesn’t support the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership /TTIP/ between the USA and the EU and we do want the dropping of the visa regime for Bulgarians, traveling to the USA to be a part of the negotiations on it, said Economy Minister Bozhidar Lukarski. The official stance of Bulgaria is not much different than the one of the other EU member-states, with the difference that it sets the condition for the visa regime for Bulgarians to the USA to be a major issue within the negotiations, Lukarski went on to say. He explained that at this stage the entry visas for Bulgarians haven’t been discussed yet.
