15 November 2018

It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to the opening of the tourism fair which will be held during the International congress on world civilizations and historic routes. This is how the Minister of Tourism Nikolina Angelkova launched the fair, which will be held within 15-16 November in Sofia. She pointed out that such events serve as a fine example of a good practice that can draw the attention to our country and this may happen owing to the presentation of the variety of tourist resources that Bulgaria has.

The opening event was attended by the Deputy Secretary-General of the World Tourism Organizations Jaime Sanclemente as well as a number of delegates from the International congress on world civilizations and historic routes, managers in the sphere of tourism, representatives of the public and private sector in this industry and the related industries, mayors and experts.

The tourism fair was located in the centre of the capital city – the Sofia Largo. On the territory of the Ancient Serdika complex, more than 15 municipalities presented the potential of its regions as tourist destinations. Our country has extremely rich culture, traditions and customs, said Minister Angelkova. She added that it is crucial to preserve them and present them to the world intact and also make efforts to popularize this treasure and Bulgaria as a year-round tourist destination.

I assure you that the Ministry of Tourism will continue to support initiatives strengthening the reputation of our national products and our country as an international tourist destination, said the minister. She thanked all the participants in the forum and wished all the visitors to have a nice time at the fair.
