Bulgaria is a member of the European Union since 2007. Over the years, its strategic geographic location (Gateway to CIS and Turkey) has helped drive its economic growth, which has mainly been supported by exports. Despite global challenges, the country has been able to maintain sound performance of its economy and strict fiscal discipline with one of the lowest budget deficits and government debts in the EU. Traditionally, the main sectors of the economy have been industrial production, natural resources and agriculture.
ING Wholesale Banking (WB) was one of the first international banks in Bulgaria. Ever since we opened our office in 1994, we have been building a stable base of corporate and institutional clients. ING CB is the preferred servicing bank of large international corporates and local blue chips. On several occasions, ING Bulgaria has been voted "Best Foreign Bank" by financial publications, including EuroMoney, Business Central Europe and Capital 100.
