Nikolina Angelkova and Ivailo Kalfin will cooperate to facilitate the employment conditions in the tourism sector for the youngest candidates

11 February 2015

Coordinated steps will be undertaken to facilitate the employment conditions in the tourist sector for individuals over 16 years old. It is expected that such a measure will benefit the business sector as the season job vacancies in the tourism sector will give young people the opportunity to work without interfering with their studies. This was negotiated at a meeting between the Minister of Tourism Nikolina Angelkova and the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Labour and Social Policy Ivailo Kalfin.   

Minister Angelkova discussed one other issue that was raised by the branch industry during her visit in Burgas and Varna last month – namely, the conditions under which foreign students can do an internship in the tourist sector. The Deputy Prime Minister assured her that there are no administrative difficulties for students from the EU countries and that they can be easily hired.

The two ministers will cooperate to create conditions for improving the professional training of those who work in the tourist sector. Possibilities for cooperation under the Clio Programme were also discussed during the meeting. Nikolina Angelkova suggested that the tourist branch be more active in the entire process and that those who have undertaken the training be hired by specific companies. The Clio Program aims to secure employment and social integration to unemployed individuals without creating new job places. In 2015 it will be geared toward the tourist sector as well and potential candidates will be able to gain professional qualification for tour guides and tourist entertainers.
