The Economic and Social Council (ESC) decided to propose to the Council of Ministers to endorse Radosvet Radev - a member of the Economic and Social Council of the Employers' Group, to become a member of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). Radosvet Radev - Executive Chairman of the Bulgarian Industrial Association, joined the ESC in place of Bozhidar Danev, who died earlier this year. According to the Economic and Social Council Act of the Republic of Bulgaria, proposals for the Bulgarian members of the European Economic Social Committee are made by the ESC to the Council of Ministers and the Council of Ministers approves the proposed nomination.

The Plenary Session of the Economic and Social Council unanimously adopted the decision and supported the candidacy of Radosvet Radev as a member of the EESC. Prior to voting on this decision, the Plenary Session paid tribute to the memory of one of the founding and most authoritative members for the 15-year history of ESC Bozhidar Danev.

The Plenary Session continued its work and adopted two resolutions on the future of the EU.
