Sofia, Bulgaria -- The Computer & Communications Industry Association is leading a delegation of tech companies to meet with Bulgarian Ministers, regulators, and startups this week ahead of the upcoming Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU. CCIA Europe will also present tech industry’s recommendations to the Bulgarian EU Presidency while in Sofia.

Bulgaria will take over the Council Presidency from Estonia on January 1 and will chair negotiations on key EU legislative files, e.g. copyright, telecoms and ePrivacy.

The following can be attributed to CCIA Europe Vice President Christian Borggreen:

“The Bulgarian Presidency comes at a critical time when many EU proposals unfortunately are drifting off course from the original ambition of achieving a thriving EU Digital Single Market.  We encourage the Bulgarian government to bring back focus on achieving one set of EU rules conducive to investments, competition, innovation and online rights.”
