Angel Dzhambazky talked with the students about the problems of Bulgarian citizens in the transport and construction business in the EU and examined the Bulgarian participation in the transport branch at the European market. We are “small” in the branch. The problems are mostly administrative. There are some invented conditions that force the business owners from the Eastern European countries to work at lower prices brought by the high rivalry in the branch, commented the Member of the European Parliament. According to him in the transport branch the most important thing is the origin of the transport company where you work. The business owners from the Western Europe can`t find people to work for them. They aim to hire drivers from the Eastern European companies working at lower standards and thus they give breath of air to their companies to continue working.
The same policy is noticed also in the construction business. Many Eastern Europeans are involved as subcontractors in the construction branch all over Western Europe. The problem is that the Bulgarian citizens go there led by the idea to work hard, earn money and come back to their families – no one of the Western Europeans would ever consider of doing it, said Dzhambazky.
