The electronics sector, which was declared by the government of structural importance for the Bulgarian economy, has been neglected by international investors. It has attracted less than 2% of the foreign direct investment in the country. At the same time, the highly qualified and still relatively inexpensive (by EU standards) workforce, is expected to increase the popularity of Bulgaria as an outsourcing destination.
As the sector currently includes around 350 companies, 95% of which are small and medium-size enterprises, excellent conditions exist for entry or expansion on the Bulgarian market via mergers and acquisitions.
