Bulgaria – Operational Programme 2007-13: Transport

The European Commission approved the Operational Programme (OP) for Transport in Bulgaria for the period 2007-2013 on 7 November 2007. This programme involves Community support for all the Bulgarian regions within the framework of the 'Convergence' objective, whose rational it is to promote growth-enhancing conditions and factors leading to real convergence for the least-developed Member States and regions. The total budget of the programme is a little over EUR 2 billion, with the Community investment financing on average 81 % through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Cohesion Fund (CF) amounts to EUR 1.6 billion.

3. The purpose and aim of the EU investment

The Operational Programme for Transport for Bulgaria presents an ambitious strategy for much-needed investments in Bulgaria’s transport infrastructure. The development strategy is in line with the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) for Bulgaria, which in its turn is based on the Community Strategic Guidelines (CSG), as well as Community Transport Policy and Trans European Network policy objectives for transport.

The planned improvement of quality and safety of transport services applies not only to the national and regional level in Bulgaria, but also to cross-border and trans-European connections, aiming to fully integrate the Bulgarian transport system into the EU transport network.
