Innovation Development of Bulgarian Export Productions (1986-2008)


  • Alexander Tassev


The article answers the question to what extent the Bulgarian branch economy, in the transition to market economy, has lost specialization in high technological and value added export productions – leading consumers of new knowledge. The conclusions are that the branch economy has lost a substantial part of the specialization in productions with high added value, including the high technological ones. As of today, it has low technological development and is under the level of a potential consumer of new knowledge. In this connection the article determines certain directions in forming an innovation model of development of the Bulgarian economy.
