The Bulgarian delegation, led by the executive director of the Ruse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Milen Dobrev, continues to take part in key economic and trade events in China, with the aim of strengthening business ties between the two countries.
On July 4, the delegation participated in China (Ningbo) – The Bulgarian Economic and Trade Forum for Cooperation, where he met with Chinese entrepreneurs and government representatives specializing in bilateral economic and trade cooperation. The next item on the agenda was a visit to the permanent pavilion of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

Mr. Xu Guang Xiang, the Chairman of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, Ningbo Committee, invited Mr. Dobrev to a tea ceremony during which they discussed next steps to promote trade links.
The visit also included a presentation of Ningbo port, which is the third largest in China by number of containers and one of the largest in the world by total cargo tonnage handled.
