In autumn 2011, during his visit to Azerbaijan, the Minister for Economy, Energy and Tourism of the Republic of Bulgaria, Traicho Traikov, emphasized the broad opportunities for the expansion of co-operation between Azerbaijan and Bulgaria in various sectors of the economy, including tourism. With this is mind, it was decided to implement some activities in order to optimize the flow of tourists from Azerbaijan to Bulgaria and vice versa. Bulgaria decided to participate with a national stand at AITF 2012, and we are confident that our participation in AITF will give impetus to tourism relations between our countries," Mr Ivo Marinov, Deputy Minister for Economy, Energy and Tourism of the Republic of Bulgaria, said.
