The study was commissioned by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bulgaria and was implemented in the period September-October 2016.
In the study the following approaches and tools were applied:
• Research of the publicly available information (trade register, register of the Public Procurement Agency, websites of the companies; information on the Operational programmes and other funding programmes).
• Development of an excel database.
• Telephone interviews with pre-selected companies.
• Online questionnaire to the rest of the companies included in the database.
The aim of the study is to facilitate the Dutch water sector by indicating the business opportunities, potential business partners and projects in Bulgaria. An overview of the Bulgarian consultancy business is extremely useful to increase the chances for Dutch businesses on the local market.
