03 December 2023 News

The event will take place on 4 December 2023 at the House of Europe at 10 a.m.

In a dynamically changing international and regional environment, constantly emerging conflicts, increasing threat of hybrid attacks and disinformation, the development and adoption of a national strategy for Bulgaria's foreign policy will have added value. It is an initiative by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Mariya Gabriel.

Against the backdrop of the clear priorities in Bulgarian politics, such as active membership in the EU and NATO, Bulgaria's participation in strategic and regional partnerships, working with Bulgarians abroad, the role of cultural diplomacy, Deputy Prime Minister Mariya Gabriel stressed the need for a discussion to outline their parameters.

Deputy Prime Minister Mariya Gabriel's idea is to hold a series of such debates on the topic.

The opening event is the conference on ‘The Foreign Policy Strategy of the Republic of Bulgaria — Challenges and Opportunities’, which will be attended by the President of the National Assembly Rosen Zhelyazkov, the Deputy Director of the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies Prof. Velizar Shalamanov, Prof. Ingrid Shikova, Department of European Studies, Sofia University ‘St. Kliment Ohridski’, political scientist Prof. Antony Todorov, academics, experts and journalists. Deputy Prime Minister Mariya Gabriel will open the forum and host it. Journalists wishing to cover the event can accredit themselves at:
