The priorities for development between Bulgaria and Japan were discussed at a meeting in Tokyo by the Minister of Economy and Industry Bogdan Bogdanov and his Japanese counterpart Nishimura Yasutoshi. 

Bogdanov emphasized that Bulgaria is becoming a hub for innovation in Europe, where we already have world-class projects related to development centers, robots, super computers and satellite constellations. 

"We are looking for opportunities to cooperate with Japanese companies precisely in these areas," announced Bogdanov. 

The two also discussed national and regional projects related to infrastructure, nuclear power and renewable energy sources, in which Japanese companies are showing interest. 

The Bulgarian guest also met with the governor of the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), Nobumitsu Hayashi, and they talked about the opportunities for investment in infrastructure projects in Bulgaria, which are part of the connection between the EU and Asia.
