The Secretariat-General of the European Commission published information, according to which Bulgaria ranks second among the 27 Member States in terms of notification of national measures implementing all directives in force.
As many as 1,720 such directives, or 99.77 per cent of the total of 1,724 whose deadline for implementation has passed by February 11, 2008, have been transposed in Bulgarian legislation, BTA reports.
Lithuania is ranked first, on 99.98 per cent. The bottom three places are taken by Portugal (97.84 per cent), Luxembourg (97.66 per cent), and Greece (97.19 per cent).
European Commission sources commented that the Bulgarian state administration has scored a serious success, which is evidence of excellent coordination in the process of transposition.
