"Ways out of the crisis and the crisis as an opportunity!"

The 8th International Conference of the Bulgarian Textile and Apparel Industry, held on Friday, December 4 at the Hilton Hotel in Sofia hosted Bulgarian and foreign delegates who discussed the problems faced by the textile and apparel sector in a period of crisis as well as the opportunities for overcoming the crisis. Many Bulgarian companies had the chance to establish direct contacts with the lecturers and international participants.
