In his remarks, Minister Dimitrov stressed: “Our most important mission is to keep the young talent, the upcoming generation, at home. Building walls won’t help. We need to create conditions for young people to find good jobs based on their ability, through fair competition of equal opportunities. To create conditions so that they won’t seek the European way abroad, but will find the European way of life at home. We want to export goods and services instead of human potential. We have made an obvious progress; our society today is very different from what it was few years ago. We are not ready for membership but we are ready to take the step on that path. Now we need confirmation and encouragement from the EU. If we do this right it can be win-win for all involved”.
