Football star Stoichkov brings Catalonia investors to Bulgaria

Date: 04.10.2008

The legendary Bulgarian football player of the 1990s Hristo Stoichkov is working to bring investors from Catalonia to his native country.

In his capacity as Chair of the Bulgarian-Catalonian Friendship Association "St. George", Stoichkov signed Monday night in Barcelona a cooperation agreement with the Union of the Bulgarian Black Sea Local Authorities (UBBSLA), which is chaired by the Mayor of the town of Aksakovo Atanas Stoilov.

The agreement is paving the road for joint projects of Bulgaria's Black Sea municipalities and Catalonian businesses.

Aksakovo, which is located in Varna's suburbs, and the Catalonian town of Igualada, which is close to Barcelona, have already become sister cities with an agreement signed on Sunday.

Together with the Portuguese city of Guimarães and the Italian city of Lecco, which have partnerships with Igualada, Aksakovo and its Catalonian sister city are going to apply for EU funding with joint projects.

The UBBSLA Chair Stoilov pointed out that the cooperation agreement was aimed not only at promoting Bulgaria's image in Catalonia and Spain. In his words, it would enable Catalonian firms, which had expressed their interest in investing in Bulgaria, to do business in its Black Sea regions.

The Bulgarian football star Hristo Stoichkov was a key player for the Barcelona FC throughout most of the 1990s, and enjoys great popularity in Catalonia.
