Greece and Bulgaria are two neighboring countries that are united by a rich past. Since the end of the 1990s, an effort has been made to develop closer cooperation over the years with the contribution of the INTERREG "Greece-Bulgaria" Program.
The central idea behind the "INTERREG" Programs is that countries deal with different issues that are easier to resolve if they work with neighboring countries, rather than with everyone remaining limited at their borders. The purpose of the Interreg programs is to bring the neighboring peoples closer together. This particular Investment Priority aims in supporting the Social Economy, which is a new and constantly evolving form of economy in both countries.
