The trade union presidents raised the issue of preserving the capacity of the energy complex Maritsa East and pointed out the reasons for their protest actions. Minister Petkova presented the participants at a meeting with the measures taken by the government in this regard. She emphasized that the mines and thermal power plants in the Maritsa basin are of strategic importance for the functioning of the energy system of Bulgaria and the region. We also discussed the position of our country for the upcoming climate change conference in Katowice, Poland. The position of the Republic of Bulgaria adopted by the Council of Ministers does not support more ambitious targets for carbon emissions.

According to the representatives of employers' organizations, measures should be taken to complete the process of liberalization of the Bulgarian energy sector. Participants at the meeting united around the sale of electricity at market prices to ensure long-term stability in the industry.

The next meeting in the energy sector should be held.
