Plamen ORESHARSKI: A Ten-year interest rate below 3.1% is a really good score for investor confidence
27 June 2014

“Yesterday's debt issuance gave pretty good results. A ten-year interest rate below 3.1% is a really good score for investor confidence. This is the objective evaluation of investors ,who put money into our economy”,  Prime Minister Oresharski told journalists in Brussels regarding the new issuance of bonds. “In relation to what is happening with Corporate Commercial Bank, we are  monitoring the state of all other Bulgarian banks and I see no cause for concern on the part of citizens. The country has enough tools [to deal with the situation], including very good cooperation with the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB). We will support all BNB efforts,  with  instruments and resources, to not allow doubt in one institution or another”, the Prime Minister said. According to him, bank problems did not have a place in political speech. “It is not good, economically, bank problems to be obviously used for upcoming campaigns”, the Prime Minister.
