Fragments from an interview by with Mr Declan Murphy, Programme Director of the Investment Compact for Southeast Europe

Q: How do you assess the policies of Bulgaria and Romania as the most advanced EU applicants in Southeast Europe in achieving the objectives of the Lisbon strategy? Do they have a coherent policy of achieving a knowledge society, don’t they ignore this priority?

No, on the contrary, both Romaina and Bulgaria can point to some very interesting development. The investor of the year award in Bulgaria this year will be given to a software company. This is the only regional award given to a software company, unlike other countries where the award goes to more traditional spheres such as manufacturing.

Of course, I am not saying the problems with educaton have been solved. All the countries in the region have not analysed yet what kind of experts they need, what educational disciplines are the most perspective and necessary for their development. But still, even some EU countries are struggling to meet the requirements of the Lisbon strategy, that’s why there is a good progress in Bulgaria and Romania.
