Digitization can become next major engine of Bulgarian economy
Tuesday, Jan 29, 2019
According to a report by the global consultancy company McKinsey, presented in Sofia last week, digitization could increase Bulgaria's GDP by 8 billion euros by 2025. In relation to this view, Mediapool website commented that digitization could be next major driver of Bulgaria's growth.

The analysis shows that in the period 1996 -2017 ten countries of Central and Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Croatia and the Czech Republic) recorded an average of114% increase in GDP per capita, but in recent years traditional growth engines have started to lose power. In those ten countries the capital is 80% lower than in the largest EU countries, labor costs are rising slowly and labor productivity is lagging behind Western Europe. But the authors of the report believe that in each one of the next six years digitalization can add one percent to GDP growth in Bulgaria and increase the share of the digital economy from today's 5.2% to 16% of GDP. Although it still has a low share in Bulgaria, digital economy has been growing in the past five years about two and a half times faster than in five major EU markets and the country can actually claim to be a digital competitor. The combination of an open market and a focus on digitization has been a successful growth strategy for today's leaders in digital economy, and their common key features (size, importance of trade and openness) show that Bulgaria is well placed to walk a similar path of prosperity, according to McKinsey.

Together with the rest of the Central and Eastern Europe region, Bulgaria can use digitization as a helpful tool for the penetration of international value creation chains. But in order to realize this opportunity, it must involve all the responsible actors in digital transformation. Businesses needs to accelerate the adoption of digital tools to increase their productivity and profits, and the public sector - to play an important role in transformation through the use of digital technologies to deliver faster processes and services to companies and ordinary citizens. At the same time, people themselves become more active and invest in lifelong learning in order to be more flexible in their career development.

Politicians can support this process by encouraging adoption of new technologies by the public and private sectors, by enhancing the opportunities for digital innovation and by helping workers by creating mobility programs aimed at retraining or qualification upgrade, the McKinseys analysis also points out.
