The team of Invest Sofia just published the fourth edition of Sofia Business Guide, a guide about Sofia as an investment destination. You can download the document from our website here.
Sofia Business Guide 2021 covers a wide range of topics and includes data on the city’s economy, workforce, education, transport and connectivity, industrial zones and areas with a concentration of business buildings in the city, priority industries, investment and entrepreneurial environment, quality of life and many more.
In the new edition, special attention is paid to the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on the labor market in Sofia, the construction sector, tourism and other spheres of urban life. The data show that the city’s economy continues to grow quite dynamically compared to other cities in the country and Sofia preserves its competitiveness during the pandemic.
Again, the Guide includes up-to-date statistics and information on the priority sectors in the economy of Sofia – artificial intelligence (AI), entertainment, movie industry and gaming, robotics, fintech, manufacturing, automotive sector, tourism and space industry.
The document contains also data on taxes, fees, investment incentives, the procedures for registering a company, funding opportunities and much more practical information for entrepreneurs who consider setting up a business in Sofia. Thus, the Sofia Business Guide 2021 serves as a step-by-step guide for starting a business in Sofia. Data are presented mainly in easily digested tables and infographics. Our team is available to provide additional data, guidance and tailored assistance to investors and entrepreneurs in the capital.
“In 2022, we’ll stay focused on attracting new investors, providing a stable environment for the local companies, strengthening key sectors, and supporting an inclusive city-to-business attitude. We believe business and city leaders can work together in a number of key areas – long-term economic growth, sustainability, and good quality of life in the city. In addition to what we’ve already started, we will strive to initiate new productive partnerships between the city administration and the entrepreneurial ecosystem through direct cooperation, openness, long-term planning, incentives, and assistance for the continued stable growth of our vibrant and beautiful city – Sofia,” CEO Maria Hristova said on the occasion of the new Sofia Business Guide release.
