Bulgaria: World Bank, EU To Review Reform

Brussels, 20 November 1997 (RFE/RL) -- The World Bank and the European Commission will chair a meeting in Brussels tomorrow to review Bulgaria's progress toward economic reform.

RFE/RL's correspondent in Brussels quotes EU Foreign Affairs Commissioner Hans van den Broek as saying that Sofia's main challence is to maintain the momentum of reform established since the government took office earlier this year.

Van den Broek also said establishing conditions for sustainable economic growth and accelerating the process of integration into the EU are important goals for Sofia.
