CITUB does not support revised National Plan for Recovery

The latest version of the National Plan for Recovery and Sustainability lacks specific measures and policies aimed at addressing the demographic crisis, promoting quality employment and reducing inequalities. This is the opinion of the CITUB trade union on the updated version of the document.

The distribution of funds in the pillars of the program is not homogeneous, trade unions say. "Fair Bulgaria" and "Connected Bulgaria" receive 18% and 17.8% of the total resource of the whole plan, while the share for "Green Bulgaria" is 36.8 percent, and for "Innovative Bulgaria" - 27.4%. There is also a lack of a common vision for the energy transformation of the Maritza Iztok coal complex, CITUB says and refrained from fully supporting the plan.
