Deaf people are among those who have traditionally been excluded from the financial services sector due to a combination of reasons such as inaccessibility, prejudice, and limited professional capacity to offer financial services to people with disabilities, due to which they are seen as an unprofitable customer base.
Signing Banks is an innovative people-focused technology program that aims to promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities, and in particular deaf people, in the use of traditional and alternative banking services, online payment services, financial transactions and mobile banking .
In this regard, the Ruse Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RTIK) organized the seminar „Affordable Banking: Advancing Deaf Rights in the Digital Age', aiming to raise public awareness of issues related to making financial services (banking, insurance and pensions) more inclusive and accessible to the hearing/deaf community.
The event will bring together Signing banks project stakeholders, namely representatives of the deaf community from the region, representatives of business, pension and insurance, as well as non-governmental organizations from the field of social services.
The seminar will also include a practical part, during which the main products developed under the Signing banks project will be presented:
Main obstacles to ensuring accessibility in the field of financial services;
Good practices in accessibility in modern banking;
Guidance for financial institutions addressing how to make financial services more accessible to deaf customers;
A guide aimed at people with hearing loss/deaf people, providing a series of guidelines for using financial services such as applying for credit, using a credit card, using investment products, etc.
Guidelines can significantly reduce the disparity in empowering deaf people to more actively use modern financial literacy tools and aids.
The event is completely free, and for people with hearing loss/deaf people who join, translation into Bulgarian sign language will be provided in real time, through a special interpreter.
We invite everyone who has an interest in the topic and wants to support the deaf community in their fight for more accessible services to join the workshop and give their feedback.
For any questions regarding the event or the project, you can contact Mr. Airi Memishev on phone 0883588675 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Ruse, during the month of Bulgarian education and culture, a remarkable anniversary will be celebrated - 150 years of professional education in Bulgaria. A memorial sign dedicated to this important anniversary date will be unveiled on May 20 in front of the Woodworking High School.
The idea for the memorial sign was the work of engineer Valery Mashev and arch. Simeon Rangelov. The place is symbolic - the high school is the first vocational school in our country. Sculptors Georgi Radulov and Daniel Kanchev took up the creation of the sign.
For the celebration of this anniversary, an Initiative Committee was created with the chairman Prof. Angel Smrikarov and the participation of the Municipality of Ruse, the Regional Department of Education, the University of Ruse, the Regional History Museum, the Regional Library "Lyuben Karavelov" and the State Archive-Ruse.

The joint efforts of the ten co-organizing chambers are expected to result in a high-quality business cocktail for networking cooperation with over 400 participants. Executives occupying top and middle management levels of international business will participate and use the opportunities for B2B networking cooperation to search for new partners, suppliers, customers and distributors.
In the framework of the webinar, studies by international research teams on the influence of temperature, humidity and CO2 in closed spaces on the health and productivity of people and children will be presented and discussed.

The event is part of the Turkey-EU Business Dialogue (TEBD) project, with the main objective of strengthening the interaction between Turkish Chambers of Commerce and Industry and their partners in the EU to promote cooperation between European and Turkish business representatives and create new opportunities for integration.
Despite the difficult situation caused by the pandemic and the contraction of a large part of the economic sectors worldwide, Turkey, as a neighboring country of Bulgaria with a large-scale economy, remains one of the main partners in our foreign trade. Regardless of the drop in trade between the two countries by 1.3% in 2020, its amount amounts to over BGN 4 billion according to NSI data. The main share of Turkish imports to Bulgaria are: electrical machines and equipment, machine parts, iron, steel, copper, plastic products, motor vehicles, cotton, knitwear, paper and cardboard products. Bulgaria mainly exports to the Turkish market steel products, copper products and ores, zinc, chemical products, sunflower seeds, plastic and wooden products, mineral and petroleum oils, cotton. According to data from the Ministry of Economy, Turkish investments in Bulgaria are close to 1 billion euros, and in the first half of 2019 alone, Turkish companies have invested 23 million euros in Bulgaria.
Against the backdrop of dynamic trade relations with our southern neighbor, there are also many challenges faced by counterparties on both sides. That is why during the event there will be an opportunity for an active discussion in which specialists and interested parties will be able to exchange up-to-date information.
