We develop and maintain relations between the United Kingdom and Bulgaria.

We work on a wide range of issues including the economy, energy policy, justice and home affairs and international security.

We have built a joint action plan to bring about growth in both countries and enhance the competitiveness. We work with the Bulgarian authorities to minimise harm to the UK from organised crime and to assist British nationals in Bulgaria.
