“Bulgarian aviation specialists have promoted themselves in leading companies around the world. The fact is that the aviation business has suffered a lot from the pandemic of COVID-19, which is why the Caretaker Government has pledged State Aid of up to BGN 30 million in the State Budget Act. The criteria for distribution of these funds will soon be clearly defined and distributed together with the aviation industry ", Georgi Todorov added.
