The Bulgarian economy is highly energy intensive and dependent on coal. That is why the transition to green energy should be smooth for the regions and the population, Prime Minister Stefan Yanev told a forum in Sofia on the green transition. "Both businesses and municipalities need help to adapt to the green transition," he said.

Frans Timmermans, Vice-President of the European Commission for the European Green Pact, also took part in the forum. He was met by trade union representatives who were holding lit candles. 

"The European Commission's main thesis is: 'No one will be left behind.' When you say this, it should not mean that tens of thousands of people will lose their jobs, and an entire country will be left without electricity," Vanya Grigorova from Podkrepa Trade Union said.
