Three Bulgarian businessmen are among the 100 richest persons in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the annual ranking of the Polish magazine Wprost.

The owner of the Nove Holding and the Putishta ("Roads") Holding Vasil Bozhkov is again ranked as the richest Bulgarian. He occupies the 61st position with a fortune of USD 1,35 B. Last year Wprost ranked Bozhkov 51st with a fortune of USD 1,5 B.

The second richest Bulgarian is the energy businessman Hristo Kovachki. He is 98th with a fortune of USD 700 M.

Kovachki owns the Maritza-East 3 Thermal Power Plant, the briquette factory Brikel, the Bobodov Thermal Power Plant, the central heating plants in the cities of Vratza, Pleven, and Burgas, the "Evropa" supermarket chain, and the Atomenergoremont company.

The last 100th position in the ranking is occupied by the third richest Bulgarian - Valentin Zahariev with his fortune of USD 680 M. Zahariev is the former owner of Finmetals Holding, which has 71% of Bulgaria's largest steel mill Kremikovtzi. He sold Finmetals to the Indian tycoon Pramod Mittal in 2005 for USD 110 M.

The first three spots in the ranking are occupied by the Russian deputy Suleiman Kerimov with USD 24,5 B, the Ukrainian deputy Rinah Ahmetov with USD 23 B, and the Russian oil tycoon Genadiy Timchenko with USD 20 B.
