When the country takes the lead on member state legislative negotiations next month, it will be in charge of pushing talks ahead on a number of proposals that the European Commission has made since 2015 as part of its digital single market initiative.
Bulgaria is particularly eager to move quickly on the telecoms legislation – known as the electronic communications code, which the Commission proposed last year.
“This is our first and foremost priority,” a spokeswoman from the Bulgarian Presidency told EURACTIV.com.
“The majority of our work will be focused on this huge file.”
More generally speaking, the biggest priority of the Bulgarian Presidency is the European perspective and connectivity of the Western Balkans.
