The expert opinions, proposals and positions of BIA on topical economic issues have been part and parcel from the most important discussions in the country.
BIA is the only business organization which is a member of BUSINESSEUROPE, a confederate-like European business organization, thus representing the Bulgarian companies and employers’ interests on a European level. Furthermore, it actively participates in the work of the International Labour Organization (ILO), the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the South East European Employers’ Forum (SEEEF).
BIA is partner in Enterprise Europe Network – the biggest network supporting SMEs. The Association continues to play an active part in the social dialogue system at national and international level where it upholds the Bulgarian business’ interests for regulation and administrative changes. The sector organizations which are members of BIA are parties in almost all collective labour agreements.
BIA works actively in solving economic problems by provoking public discussions on topical issues and offering constructive possible solutions. BIA was the first to pay attention to the informal economy issue, the severe intercompany indebtedness, the breach of market principles in setting electricity prices etc.
BIA has signed cooperation agreements with over 70 national business and employers’ organizations from the most developed countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and the USA.
