"I was really impressed by the speed at which Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and his Government are implementing reforms. The Prime Minister of Bulgaria is trying to improve the effectiveness of the judiciary and his team is focused on achieving real and tangible results of the economic reform in the country." This is stated in a special letter of World Bank President, Robert Zoellick, to the President of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, reports Focus News. In the letter, the Head of the financial institution shares his impressions of his visit to Bulgaria in August. Zoellick pointed out that "the Bulgarian Government recognizes its own institutional constraints which hinder the utilization of the EU funds and Prime Minister Borissov recognizes the accelerated absorption of European money and the efficient and transparent spending of the public resources as some of the most important factors for the much needed economic recovery of the country."
In his letter to the European Commission, the World Bank President again draws the attention to the readiness of the bank for "adapting the existing loan programme in order to assist Bulgaria in better utilizing its advantages of its EU membership.”
"Such evaluations motivate us to double, even triple our efforts. They present a chance to improve the situation in the country," commented on Zoellick's letter Prime Minister Boyko Borissov.
