A delegation of seven cabinet ministers led by Prime Minister Boyko Borissov is now on a visit in China to participate in the 4th China-CEE Summit. Before the start of the forum, a bilateral business forum is held today in Shanghai in which 36 Bulgarian companies are looking for new contacts and partnerships in the sectors of Wine Production, Agriculture, Production of Roses, Cosmetics, and Tourism. Borissov agreed with the mayor of Shanghai, Yang Xiong, that Bulgaria’s capital city Sofia and the Chinese megalopolis should become sister cities. Shanghai is a leading manufacturing center and free trade zone as a quarter of China’s trade is handled through its port.
