The Big Problem in Bulgaria is no Longer Corruption, but the Labor Force

The Minister of Economy Emil Karanikolov commented that the big problem in Bulgaria is no longer corruption, but the labor force as the business begins to refuse orders because there is no one to work. He said in an interview for bTV, however, that corruption still exists.

According to him, some short-term measures should be taken, including turning to Bulgarian minorities in neighboring countries and activities on returning them to Bulgaria. He specified that the Ministry is currently targeting ones in Ukraine, Moldova, and Armenia. He also commented that Bulgaria cannot influence the price of gas, but it is rising on the world market as well as the products that replace it.

The increase in the price of heating was determined to be extremely unpleasant, in his words. He claimed that the state has special subsidies for the socially disadvantaged people, for whom it is impossible to pay. According to him, the income must grow more, faster and with a higher percentage than the cost of goods.
