In the context of the dynamic conditions since the beginning of the pandemic, the objective of this article is to explore the changes in the export of Bulgaria. The focus is on two categories: consumption goods and intermediate goods. My approach is based on the examination of the latest available data for trade value. It is combined with a review of relevant publications of international organizations and the academia. The results suggest disruptions in the Bulgarian export of both observed categories since the outbreak of the new virus. Based on early data, the article can be useful to provide initial indication for the variations in export in the first three quarters of 2020. The implications of the outcomes may be limited by the uncertainty of the pandemic and possible unexpected changes in the international trade environment.
