Please join the Austin Chamber and U.S. Department of Commerce in partnership with His Excellency James Warlick, Ambassador of the United States to the Republic of Bulgaria at an important seminar “Accessing Opportunities Arising from EU-funded Projects in Bulgaria” highlighting opportunities arising from major e-government projects as well as the creation of the business incubator/Tech Park project.
