The executive director of the Bulgarian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry gave this interview in April 2019 for the Bulgarian television Bloomberg Bulgaria, speaking about the third bridge over the Danube at Svishtov-Zimnicea, about the need for better cross-border connectivity and the successful business cooperation between Bulgaria and Romania

The decision for the construction of the third bridge over the Danube between Bulgaria and Romania at Svishtov-Zimnicea was taken without discussions with the business organisations, which develop the relations between the two countries, such as the Bulgarian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and industry. This is what the executive director of the chamber Eleonora Ivanova said in an interview for the Bloomberg Bulgaria TV, which is now given to the blog “The Bridge of Friendship”. Furthermore, BRCCI has fighted for the last two years in order to encourage the usage of cheap and effective possibilities for lowering of the traffic at the bridge between Rousse and Giurgiu, through the introduction of a ferryboat. Each bridge over the Danube would contribute to interconnectivity between the two countries, but the need for a new bridge at Rousse-Giurgiu remains dire, says Eleonora Ivanova. That is why when such decisions are taken, they have to be based on the current data and on the experts’ advice.

After all, Ivanova noted that the Bulgarian-Romanian trade turnover had reached 4,6 billion euro in 2018, which makes Romania the third largest trade partner of Bulgaria in the EU. “There is still untapped potential for cooperation”, said in conclusion the executive director of the BRCCI, which is a business organisation with headquarters in Rousse and activity in the two countries. .

The blog “The Bridge of Friendship” thanks the Bloomberg Bulgaria TV for the possibility to distribute the interview with Eleonora Ivanova in Bulgarian, Romanian and English. That is the beginning of a cooperation, which might lead to other concrete accomplishments.
