Some of the projects under the Recovery and Sustainability Plan will be dropped, the Council of Ministers has decided. According to Finance Minister Assen Vassilev, these will be as many as 18 projects, and the reason is the change of the financial framework of the plan in the last year. 

The Batteries project will be dropped, as well as others that should have been in the implementation phase but the government failed to prepare the proper documentation last year. "This is not part of the renegotiation, but a reduction in projects due to reduced financial resources," the minister clarified. 

Assen Vassilev said of a proposal, which was met with disapproval from opposition forces, "As for the possibility of the NRA rewarding people who have given a sufficiently specific account when proving and collecting taxes - there is such legislation in almost all European countries, in the States, in England, and it is very effective, so it is not something new that we have come up with here, and it works very well."
