Minister Miloshev emphasized the importance of transparent communication and urged for collaboration among institutions to protect the tourism product and the interests of legally operating businesses.

Efforts to ensure the cleanliness and safety of beaches were highlighted, with regular seawater research and collaboration between relevant authorities. Additional medical staff and emergency teams will be deployed, particularly focusing on children's camps, while food safety measures will be rigorously enforced.

The National Revenue Agency (NRA) announced plans for inspections to combat violations such as failure to issue receipts, with additional police presence to ensure the safety and peace of vacationers during the tourist season.

Infrastructure improvements, including road repairs and enhancements to water supply systems, were also discussed, alongside measures to enhance beach safety through collaboration with concessionaires and volunteer lifeguards.

Representatives from various control bodies, including the Commission for Consumer Protection, the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency, and the National Revenue Agency, participated in the meeting.
