The aim of the workshop was creating a dialogue between the private sector, the state institutions and the refugee community in Bulgaria on potential cooperation on this topic. The seminar addressed the challenges and concerns, but the focus was on potentials of a cooperation in order to support Bulgaria’s growing business sectors by tapping into this un-facilitated workforce.

The questions discussed were: “What needs to be done to equip refugees with the skills needed to answer to work force needs in Bulgaria?” and “How can businesses get involved in contributing to successful employment policies?”
