Center for Economic Development


Sofia, Bulgaria

CED's goals are (1) to contribute actively to Bulgaria's economic development and achievement of sustainable growth; (2) to play a key role in formulating economic policy options and to promote public debate on major economic issues; and (3) to foster cooperation between the public, private and NGO sectors and educational institutions in addressing economic problems. CED achieves its goals through economic research, analysis, and elaboration of current economic legislation. CED develops economic policy options, advocates appropriate implementation of policies, and promotes the sharing of ideas and information among experts. CED increases public awareness through the dissemination of findings, organizing workshops, conferences, and other public events. CED also works proactively in shaping Bulgaria's reforms and the achievement of a well-functioning market economy by focusing its activities in priority areas, including competitiveness and economic growth, territorial development, social policy, public finance and fiscal policy, high-tech development, infrastructure, energy and transport, enterprise policy, anticorruption activities, Bulgaria's EU accession, reliable economic information, and CED's Internet portals.
