The Council of Ministers adopted today an Action Plan for Social Economy for 2016 - 2017. This document aims to develop and promote social economy and entrepreneurship.
The plan sets out a number of awareness campaigns and forums to enhance the visibility of social enterprises in Bulgaria and to present best practices in this field.
To ensure institutional support, it includes the organisation of an academy for social entrepreneurs. Social economy curricula will be developed for training service providers.
Social economy and social entrepreneurship are a separate investment priority in the Human Resources Development Operational Programme (2014-2020), thus further emphasizing the contribution of initiatives and measures that will enhance the opportunities for consolidating the social economy sector.
