ABSTRACT: Cohesion policy of the European Union, which aims harmonious development through creation and implementation of actions, leading to strengthening of economic and social cohesion, is substantial for the Bulgarian regional policy objectives and principles. A top priority of the Bulgarian strategic documents, developed in accordance with the European regulations, is sustainable and balanced development of the regions in Bulgaria by reducing inter-regional and intra-regional disparities and development of endogenous capacities at regional and local level.
The objective of the report is to make a thorough study of the economic and social development of the six Bulgarian regions at level two for the period 2000-2012, using the method of comparative analysis.
The survey results show a growing trend of concentration of population and economic activity in the capital city, which leads to rise of the Southwestern region gross value added to more than 70%. Contrary to that ascertainment is the conclusion that the other five Bulgarian regions are among the last ten EU regions as concerning the indicator GDP per capita. The results of the study concluded that by 2012 Bulgaria has not made much progress in the process of leveling the regional differences, set as primary objective of the regional policy in 2005.
