Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov is on an official visit to Germany in the period January 24-26 at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Within the framework of the visit, Borissov is scheduled to confer with Chancellor Merkel, Bundestag President Prof. Dr. Norbert Lammert and Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit.
Borissov will meet with the Bulgarian community in Berlin and the Bulgarian students living there, as well as with representatives of German business. He will also confer with Hans-Gert Pottering, President of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
Deputy PM and Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov, Economy, Energy and Tourism Minister Traicho Traikov and Regional Development and Public Works Minister Rosen Plevneliev are also on Borissov's delegation.
On Monday, January 25, Bulgaria and Germany will sign an agreement on the avoidance of double taxation of income and tax evasion in respect to income and property. Also on Monday, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation will arrange a conference entitled "Democracy and Freedom: Bulgaria's European Road after 1989", at which Borissov will speak about his Government's policy of reforms.
In 2009, Borissov, at that time a GERB leader and Prime Minister nominee, visited Germany to attend a congress of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany.
