Bulgaria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Ekaterina Zaharieva is presiding the first video-conference sitting of the coordination group of the Three Seas Initiative, this country’s foreign ministry has announced.

The fact that Bulgaria joined the investment fund with a financial contribution to the tune of EUR 20 million and is one of the eight countries with financial contribution proves that it has its worthy place in the Three Seas Initiative, Minister Zaharieva who is national coordinator of the format said.

Energy and connectivity are the main priorities of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Three Seas Initiative in 2021. Within the frameworks of the format, Sofia will develop the expansion of the gas storage facility in Chiren, the reconstruction of Ruse-Varna railway line, the construction of a tunnel under Petrohan pass and Black Sea motorway connecting Varna and Burgas.
