BULGARIA TO KEEP WORKING FOR CLEANER AND GREENER CITIES

Sofia - Bulgaria will keep working for cleaner, greener and more sustainable cities in line with the principles and the strategic documents of the Urban Agenda for the EU, Deputy Regional Development and Public Works Minister Ivan Shishkov said Friday at an online Informal Meeting of Ministers Responsible for Urban Matters, as quoted by his ministry. The meeting was chaired by Slovenian Environment and Spatial Planning Minister Andrej Vizjak, whose country holds the rotating EU Council Presidency. The meeting adopted the so-called Ljubljana Agreement, which builds upon earlier strategic documents: the Pact of Amsterdam and the Leipzig Charter. Shishkov told the forum that the Ljubljana Agreement will pave the way for sustainable and balanced urban development in the coming years, based on new technology and digitization. He said Bulgaria attaches priority importance to dealing with pollution, improving access to public services and housing, curbing social inequalities, coping with intensive city traffic and addressing technical infrastructure deficiencies. "We are trying to solve problems in accordance with the principles of the New Leipzig Charter of 2020 through integrated measures, partnership with stakeholders, multitear management, and investments tailored to the needs of a given area."Shishkov said.
