Sofia Discusses Jan 1, 2007 Celebrations

Date: 09.11.2006

The prime minister is convening Wednesday representatives of all ministries to discuss the agenda of celebrations upon the EU entry of Bulgaria - January 1, 2007.

Among a pile of projects and initiatives, the most impressive include a huge lightened pyramide constructed by rays spilling from St Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the Catholic Cathedral "Saint Joseph", the central synagogue and the mosque.

The idea will embody the widely acclaimed Bulgarian model of ethnic tolerance, considered to be exemplary for the Balkans region.

Fireworks, gala ball, a celebrative golden coin, free public traffic tickets and many more initiatives will be considered by the special body set to mark the historic entry to the bloc of 25.

The first meeting of the body brought around one table former presidents Zhelyu Zhelev and Petar Stoyanov, former prime minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg, nationalist leader Volen Siderov, Central Bank governor Ivan Iskrov, lawmakers, businessmen.

On September 29 the European Commission recommended that Bulgaria and Romania join the Union on 1 January 2007. The motion ended a ten-year period of tough negotiations and crucial reforms in the former communist state, now projected to be "an economic tiger" of the region.
