Bulgaria occupies one of the bottom places in the list of EU countries with regard to workforce digital skills, said the President of the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria, CITUB, Plamen Dimitrov.

"We are flashing in red for yet another year in one of the five key spheres in which we are in critical condition - the digital skills of the population, and more specifically of the 3.2 million working Bulgarians," Plamen Dimitrov said. 

Plamen Dimitrov once again called for European financing amounting to 1 billion euro for a period of 5 years, or 300 euro for every working Bulgarian. He cited as an example the fact that by 2020, AI bots will operate over 85 percent of all customer service activities.
