Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova held a work meeting in Sunny Beach with Mirko Sarovic, Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The talk took place within the International Conference on Sustainable Tourism Investment with the participation of representatives from more than 20 countries. Minister Sarovic congratulated his Bulgarian counterpart on the initiative, which gives new opportunities for partnership.

Minister Angelkova thanked for the presence of the delegation from Bosnia and Herzegovina and emphasized that the forum aims to reveal the importance of the region's tourist map and to attract more investment in the sector. We need to work even harder to make this part of Europe more attractive for business projects. For tourists from third and distant markets such as China, Japan, India, USA, together we can be even more interesting and wanted as a destination. We know each other, but we need joint efforts to promote ourselves together, said Minister Angelkova.

Minister Sarovic thanked for his hospitality and announced that he had been to Bulgaria several times, including during the EU Council Presidency. He welcomes the idea of promoting the Balkans more actively to Chinese tourists. Minister Angelkova was invited to visit Sarajevo. The two sides expressed the view that signing a memorandum between their countries in tourism will outline concrete steps both for promoting tourism opportunities between the two countries and with a common product for tourists from distant markets.
