“It is worrisome that this person has worked on the territory of Bulgaria for 5 years and the DANS has not detected him,” Vassilev added.
“Colleagues from RSM said that he recruited Macedonian citizens”, recalled the minister.
He also commented on the requested reform of the security services in our country.

“The conversation should not be about personalities, but about principle. The truth is that what I see as a product does not meet any standards. I don’t think that the Bulgarian security services actually guarantee the security of the country”, asserts Vassilev. According to him, the repair of the services is extremely imperative because they are ineffective.
“Currently, the government is working well enough without any additional clarifications.” Thus, the finance minister commented on whether the “assembly” will become a coalition, signing an agreement.
January 1, 2025 is the new official target date for adopting the euro in Bulgaria
Our country requested a new date for entering the Eurozone. The government decided that this would be January 1, 2025. The delay, according to Vassilev, was necessary because “the cabinet did not ask for a report so that the decision could be made in June, and it produced a budget with a deficit of 6.4%.”
“This will be the date we have set and which we are discussing with the ECB and the EC”, confirmed the responsible minister.
