“Local press reports cited figures from the
Bulgarian Association of Apparel and Textile Producers and Exporters
that showed a 20% growth in sales in the first nine months of 2010 over
the same period last year”.The reports quoted Mariana Manolova,
head of the Association, saying the industry would probably start to
hire new workers, however a lack of available credit and the grey market
continue to dog the sector ..Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, and the UK are amongst Bulgaria’s top markets .
