Greek investments in Bulgaria hit 37.5 million euro in three months alone
It seems that Greece, which is currently coping with serious economic challenges, has seen an investment heaven in Bulgaria. Over the first three months of 2010, Greek companies have invested in Bulgaria a total of 37.5 million euro, against only half a million euro for the same period of last year.
According to a publication in the Greek newspaper Impersia, this investment boom means that the Greek businessmen are seeking a secure place for their money and Bulgaria appears more attractive to them than their home market. According to Greece’s statistical watchdog, the volume of the trade exchange between Bulgaria and Greece hit 414.1 million euro in the first trimester of 2010.
