Borissov cabinet appoints new head of State Agency for Bulgarians Abroad

May 31, 2017

Prime Minister Boiko Borissov?s coalition Cabinet appointed Petar Haralampiev as the new head of the State Agency for Bulgarians Abroad.

The decision, taken at a scheduled meeting of the Cabinet on May 31 2017, is the latest in a succession of changes of the head of the agency in recent years, as governments have come and gone and amid controversies a few years ago about the agency?s work.

A graduate of Sofia University with a master?s degree in law, Haralampiev was from December 2014 to May 2017 deputy regional governor of the Sofia region. He previously was executive director and a member of the executive council of the Bulgare Foundation.

Haralampiev is the seventh head of the State Agency for Bulgarians Abroad in about seven years.
