The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and GERB/EPP MEP Eva Paunova are proud to extend an invitation to a stakeholder conference on the subject of encouraging the development of SMEs in Bourgas, kindly hosted by the city’s Mayor Dimitar Nikolov. It will take place on Thursday, 27th of August 2015 at 6pm in the Business Incubator building, Kn. A. Battenberg 28, Bourgas.
The conference will feature advice on the priorities for financing SMEs through EU Support programmes, as well as a session on grants available from Brussels directly. The Agency will also lay out its plans for the development of its own regional network of centres for facilitating local business.
Information will be available about relevant trade events, showcases and expositions supported by the Agency, together with tips for participants on how to make the most of their attendance. Another focus of the meeting will be the new ‘Innovation and Competitiveness’ operational programme, aimed at SMEs as arguably the most important factor in growing the Bulgarian and European economies.
