Thursday,  6 February 2020, Magdeburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany: Premier Dr. Reiner Haseloff welcomed the Ambassador of the Republic of Bulgaria, Elena Radkova Shekerletova, for her inaugural visit to the State Chancellery. Honorary Consul of Bulgaria, Ralf Hesse, responsible for Saxony-Anhalt,  also partook in the meeting.

They discussed possibilities for the development of bilateral relations, especially in the economic field.

In 2018, companies from our state exported goods worth about 33.5 million euros to Bulgaria, while imports reached almost the same volume at 33.3 million euros. Since 2001, companies from Saxony-Anhalt have been regularly represented at the Technical Fair in Plovdiv.

At present, there are three town twinning arrangements:

  • Barleben with Tzarevo
  • Oebisfelde-Weferlingen with Svilengrad
  • Wolmirstedt with Sredez

Almost all universities maintain cooperation with Bulgarian universities. Currently there is a school partnership between the Geschwister-Scholl-Gymnasium Sangerhausn and the Foreign Language High School in Veliko Tarnovo.
