The Ministry of Finance will define locations that are more difficult to access and the petrol stations will be situated there”, said the Minister of Economics Emil Karanikolov in “Offensive with Lyubo Ognyanov” TV Program on Channel 3.
"The state-owned petrol stations will be located in places where there are none. 2 years will be needed to see the real effect of this measure”, continued Karanikolov.
“Hotels and restaurants were most damaged businesses by COVID-19. This is why they need a lower VAT for a current period. The minimum salary will rise as well and will reach higher levels than the average salary in the state. People need to have their earnings back in order to visit restaurants and hotels” , added the Minister of Economy.
"Lower VAT rates will be kept until the end of 2020. But after that we will need to analyze the consequences of this measure. If there is a second wave of the disease through the autumn and another closure of the economy is the measure needed, we will make another plan”, said Emil Karanikolov.
"No foreign investments were withdrawn. But the end of the quarantine will make it way easier for the economy. Bulgaria is still attractive for the investors. The Minister of Finance is doing his job properly, there is no tension in the government”, continued the minister.
