The government plans to enter in an official document January 1, 2025 as the target date for Bulgaria’s membership in the eurozone. This foresees a draft government decree to amend the decree of July 2015 to establish a Coordination Council for Bulgaria’s preparation for membership in the Eurozone. The document has been published for a month-long public consultation.
It is proposed to adopt normative changes in Government Decree No. 168 of 2015 “with a view to creating prerequisites for more effective and timely coordination of the management and implementation of the preparations of the Republic of Bulgaria for membership in the Eurozone with a view to realizing the goal of Bulgaria introducing the euro from the new indicative date – January 1, 2025.”
