Cooperation agreement on social welfare issues signed between Sweden and Bulgaria

Published

Åsa Regnér, Minister for Children, the Elderly and Gender Equality, and Ivailo Kalfin, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Labour and Social Policy, today signed a cooperation agreement between Sweden and Bulgaria. The agreement, which covers issues dealing with gender equality, children, the elderly and people with disabilities, aims to improve the situation of vulnerable EU citizens.

"This agreement places greater emphasis on issues dealing with the elderly and people with disabilities than the agreement we signed with Romania. This was requested by Bulgaria and is an area in which we have long experience, both in Sweden and internationally. Through the exchange of knowledge, experience and good practice, and by promoting cooperation between non-profit organisations, we can improve the lives of vulnerable people," says Ms Regnér.
