“YouthSpark aims at encouraging young people improve their career”, explains the Executive Director of Microsoft Bulgaria Petar Ivanov. "Currently the unemployment rate in Bulgaria amounts to 13% and youth unemployment exceeds 20%.

Besides, young people graduating Information Technologies can take part at the Imagine Cup competition aimed at developing projects in the IT industry."

"This part of the world and especially Southeast Europe is the most developed in terms of the Internet, for example regarding speed. The challenge here is that we still have, perhaps, the fastest internet. But still no one is in a hurry to introduce this new technology. I'm talking about IP - version 6. We are not in a rush because there are still ample opportunities in version 4, but it will be exhausted. We need to be one step ahead in our work on the new technology and introduce them tomorrow, and not when it is too late. Our organization BIX is the place where providers of fast internet get in touch. The event was attended by several organizations sharing fast Internet from Macedonia, Romania, Greece and others."
"The data for Bulgaria show that nearly seventy percent of public investment come from EU funds. That is, they are very important for the country. The stakes are very high. Overall, the EU is losing over 120 billion euro annually because of corruption and fraud. Corruption is a huge problem. But it destroys the confidence of citizens and businesses in the EU. This is very important. Because it is not just about money. This is a question of risk and confidence" , he stressed
