The Italian Ambassador to Sofia Giuseppina Zarra recently visited Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second largest city after the capital, to meet with the local authorities. During her visit, the Ambassador was accompanied by the Italian Honorary Consul in Plovdiv, Giuseppe De Francesco, and the President of Confindustria Bulgaria, Roberto Santorelli.

Ambassador Zarra met with Regional Administrator Iliya Zyumbilev and with Mayor Kostadin Dimitrov. During the talks, they discussed possible initiatives within the framework of the excellent bilateral cooperation between the two countries aimed at attracting further Italian investments in the city and the region, increasing tourism, and developing cultural relations between Italy and Bulgaria, particularly in the Plovdiv region.

The university representatives attending the meeting shared their enthusiasm for the excellent performance of the Italian students. Several aspects of bilateral relations and cooperation prospects with Italian universities were also discussed.
