Varna economy is primarily hospitality, construction, chemical industry, transportation, storage and other auxiliary activities in transport, trade and services. Though fast-growing, digital companies are not structurally identifiable for Varna - more than 70 percent of these companies in the country are based in Sofia, a national survey shows. In this picture, the digitization of the local economy means, above all, efforts among local low and medium-tech sectors.

          70% of low-tech companies in Europe have invested in digital technologies from 2016 to today. How many are the digitally-literate companies from the leading traditional industries in Varna, how prepared and interested are they to respond to the tendencies for digitization? What are the products and services offered by local digital companies, what new territories are open to developing digital projects to meet these needs, and how future procedures under the Operational Program Innovation and Competitiveness can fund such initiatives were the topics of the second meeting of the regional multi-stakeholders group of project #Interreg_DEVISE held at May 30 in Varna.
