Italy’s Foreign Minister Luigi di Maio, who met with Prime Minister Boyko Borissov at the Council of Ministers, commended Bulgaria for the way it is coping with the Covid-19 epidemic.  

Boyko Borissov and Luigi di Maio discussed the recovery measures after the crisis, as well as the fruitful relations between the two countries. A sign of this are the direct Italian investments in Bulgaria, which, at the end of 2019, reached EUR 2,687.9 million, placing Italy in 4th place in foreign investments after the Netherlands, Austria and Germany. An increase in the number of Italian citizens visiting Bulgaria has been registered in recent years.
