A 10% increase in GDP, increase in investment by 4%, increase in gross value added by 8%, increase in exports of goods and services by 20%. These are some of the achievements presented by the Minister of Economy Kiril Petkov at the end of the term of the caretaker cabinet. He stressed that these are great values ​​that show economic growth. 

For his part, Finance Minister Asen Vassilev said the cabinet had stopped inspecting hair salons and control had focused on large companies with significant turnover. 
"The change of control from small to large brought two effects - more money began to be collected in the treasury and the business began to work more calmly," he commented. 
According to the Minister, this is the reason why in the second quarter of the year a record increase of 10% of the collection in the treasury was reported.
