The performance of Bulgaria’s banking sector has been improving for the fourth consecutive year. Credit activity is among the main factors that contributed to the economic growth in this country, which is one of the highest in the whole EU. The indicators of the Bulgarian banks have improved, including profitability.  The volume of bad loans has decreased, the Governor of the Bulgarian National Bank Dimitar Radev said in an interview for Nova TV. Dimitar Radev also pointed out that basic indicators such as capital adequacy and liquidity are above the EU average. The Bulgarian economy and banks are expected to remain stable in 2020, regardless of the unfavorable external environment. In Dimitar Radev’s view, the 3%-3.5% economic growth projected by the Bulgarian government for 2020 is realistic.
