On Wednesday 24 March 2010, DECP organised a visit of Mr. Sala, International relations coordinator of BIZNESALBANIA, to the “clean industry center” of the Bulgarian Industrial Association – Union of Bulgarian Business (BIA-UBB)
Mr. Sala was accompanied by Mr. J.M. Standaert, special advisor of DECP. They were welcomed by Mrs. Iliana Pavlova, expert of the “clean industry center” at BIA-UBB. She gave a detailed and useful information about the history and present activities of the center, which was founded in 1995. Its purpose is to minimise waste and to develop a policy of waste management. Amongst others, this center provides train-the trainer seminars and publishes advisory reports on new EU-legislation and other related issues.
BIZNESALBANIA has the intention to set-up a similar center, for which they are preparing an application to a “call for proposals” of EuropeAid. Mr. Sala regarded the information he received very valuable and will share it with his colleagues.
