By Decision No 493 of 21 July 2020 a national strategic document "Digital Transformation of Bulgaria for the period 2020-2030" was adopted. The document sets out the principles of digital change in the main areas of economic life. The aim of the widespread use of digital technologies is to reduce the use of energy and resources.
One of the main priorities of the strategy is to improve the existing infrastructure by ensuring the widespread deployment and use of very high-capacity networks. High-speed fiber routes, as well as fifth-generation networks, will be among the most crucial building blocks of a digital economy and society. Improving connectivity will enable the development of innovative business models in multiple sectors such as research, digital and telehealth, security, logistics, autonomous and connected vehicles, digital governance and digital education, as well as the development of smart cities.
Support for high-speed connectivity will be accompanied by measures to boost digital skills and stimulate demand for internet-based services from citizens and businesses. The strategy aims to integrate technological subjects and digital skills into the curricula of all levels of education and vocational training and retraining systems.
