Ogreon told re­porters that as part of their ef­forts to boost bi­lat­eral ties, they are tak­ing two com­mer­cial del­e­ga­tions from Suleimaniya to Bul­garia to seek busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties with Bul­gar­ian busi­ness­men.

“Bul­garia is a beau­ti­ful touris­tic coun­try that wel­comes over 9 mil­lion tourists each year," said Ogreon. “Bul­garia is a big pro­ducer of cheese and veg­etable oils, and our foods are sim­i­lar to Kur­dis­tan's foods. We have also talked with the Min­is­ter of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion to send some Kur­dish stu­dents to study masters and PhD in Bul­garia and bring back tourism ex­pe­ri­ence to Kur­dis­tan.”

He also added that they would also like to send their tourists to Kur­dis­tan and de­velop trade re­la­tions with the Re­gion.

Cur­rently 9 Bul­gar­ian com­pa­nies work in Kur­dis­tan in tourism and con­struc­tion sec­tors.

Rosti told the me­dia or­ga­ni­za­tions that they want to make tourism a ma­jor source of rev­enue for the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

“Our pri­or­ity is to pro­vide safety and se­cu­rity for tourists,” Rosti said. “We pro­vide as­sis­tance and fa­cil­i­ta­tion for those who want to go and study masters and PhD in Bul­garia and bring back the suc­cess­ful tourism ex­pe­ri­ence with them."
