Plovdiv – Opportunities for Greek Companies
Historically Plovdiv has always been closely related to Greece – there are many people of Greek origin residing permanently in town and the local universities are quite popular among Greeks. The inextricable bonds between the second largest Bulgarian city and the Greek tradition do not end up here. There is a special Greek consulate in Plovdiv serving to the interests of Greek citizens abroad if at all they can refer to the city that way. Plovdiv formed long ago as their second home and the existing local opportunities are becoming more and more popular among the ordinary people in Greece as well as the entrepreneurs in search for the right business formula.

The national legislation as well as the local administration helpfulness gives a wide range of opportunities for a quick and easy access to the local business life and many circumstances help our south neighbors feel at home. A great number of Greek banks have opened branches in the city and in each one of them you could be assisted by a Greek-speaking representative, thereby avoiding language restrictions in that essential business communication aspect.
