The Eastern gate of Bulgaria, and in the future - the Eastern gate of the European Union
This is my vision and approach to the development of Varna district. Traditionally outward looking, the city of Varna and its district acquire a key role for the development of the national economy in the context of the intensively ongoing processes of economic globalization and integration.
Port Varna and Varna International Airport are major infrastructure units in the region. Varna district has the highest rate of digitization of the telephone network in Bulgaria. The number of ISDN lines, however, is still limited, which offers a field for potential development. The city of Varna is a major telecommunication terminal of the optic-fiber highway, which connects Bulgaria with Turkey, Rumania, Ukraine and with Western Europe. That, together with the large number of highly skilled human resources and IT firms, which operate in the region, renders Varna district suitable for investment in the high-tech sector. The GDP of the district amounts to 5,4 % of the national GDP.
Ohe most dynamic sector is tourism with an annual growth of more than 20 %. Varna is also a centre of international fairs and exhibitions. In the five universities, the naval academy and the six colleges of the city work 2 500 scientific specialists and 30 600 students are being educated. Research and development is carried out in six scientific institutes in the fields of fish resources, marine research, hydro and aero dynamics, water transport, shipbuilding and metallography.
