The round table attracted companies from the region, which received information on the possibilities for exploring foreign partners, for the available services of BCCI and for the for review of the country and sector risks in the world. Milena Videnova noted that "risk can be reduced by relying not only on public information but also on expert opinion, by making a request to Coface."
