BSMEPA is preparing legal amendments aimed at supporting small-scale entrepreneurs and companies
As regards access to public procurement, we suggest setting an obligatory quota of public procurement deals which large-scale companies will be required to assign to small and medium-sized enterprises," says Mariyana Velkova, Executive Director of BSMEPA.
As regards medium-sized enterprises, which have a staff of up to 250 and much higher turnovers, every fourth company has won an EU-funded project, according to BSMEPA data.
Speaking in Parliament on Friday, he explained that the BSMEPA was doing a poor job in executing its main functions related to the Competitiveness EP.
Unfortunately, it is not very efficient at this stage and we plan to change the articles of association so that the intermediate unit at the BSMEPA becomes a part of a Chief Directorate at the Ministry of Economy and Energy, thereby uniting the functions of the two authorities.
