Dear Mr. Borisov,

Conducted numerous public debates in connection with the Bulgarian presidency of the European Council reaffirmed the need to immediately initiate all necessary procedures for accession of Bulgaria to the ERM II, and accelerate all preparatory steps for subsequent accession to the Eurozone.

As you informed on these issues nationally represented employers and trade unions have expressed their categorical common positions, incl. in November 2014, in the accepted opinion of the Economic and Social Council of December 2017 and other self-declarations.

In a letter to you on 14.06.2018, the social partners proposed holding an emergency meeting on repeatedly stated commitments to quickly join the ERM II. The busy schedule of the Bulgarian presidency of the European Council clearly hampered the timely holding of this meeting and full discussion in our proposed format.
