On Thursday, 24 October 2013, the European Commission Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry hosted a seminar in Bulgaria at the International Expo Centre in Sofia on the issue of late payment and the application of a new European directive to tackle the problem.
This directive is an important legal development for businesses, particularly SMEs, and public authorities in Bulgaria and across the EU. It puts in place strict time-lines and tough penalties for payment between businesses, and between businesses and public authorities.
The seminar provided participants with an opportunity to learn more about the problem of late payment and the new measures being put in place to address the issue.
It included presentations from: Mr. Ognian Zlatev, Head of the European Commission Representation in Bulgaria; Ms. Anna Yaneva, Deputy Minister of Economy and Energy; Ms. Idaira Robayna Alfonso, Legal Officer, European Commission - Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry; Ms. Elena Doycheva, National Expert, Ministry of Justice; Ms. Madeleine Bosch, Group Marketing Manager, Intrum Justitia; Mrs. Raina Mitkova-Todorova, Managing Director of EOS Matrix.
This campaign is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise & Industry and is part of the European Commission’s ongoing commitment to promoting economic growth and European business.
