RIYADH: The Saudi-Bulgarian Businessmen Forum at the headquarters of the Council of Saudi Chambers in Riyadh on Friday discussed the development of trade and the signing of investment agreements between the two countries.

He said that he hoped that the meeting would be the beginning of a dialogue that would contribute to increasing trade between the two countries, which had reached $269 million by 2017.

“We are currently working on an agreement to promote and protect the investments,” Karanikolov said. “We also expect the establishment of a joint committee between the Bulgarian government and Saudi Arabia for economic cooperation,” he said, adding that the Bulgarian government was prioritizing its trade and industrial relations with Saudi Arabia and would support all initiatives that serve cooperation between the two countries.
