Our organization has clearly demonstrated its strength and cohesion both during the pandemic, and in the census of employers' organizations, and in defending the interests of our members in the change of several governments and a dysfunctional parliament, and in demanding and imposing rescue measures for business, and in our general protest readiness at the moment", said the chairman of KRIB and continued: "The facts speak for themselves - after the last census KRIB is again the largest national representative organization of employers in Bulgaria, many times larger than other employers' organizations according to the criteria. And no one disputes that fact anymore."
"I believe that showing solidarity and empathy is extremely important in this critical and difficult time. We at KRIB have always shown solidarity with our employees in overcoming difficulties. We have shown great solidarity with the needs of society during the COVID-19 pandemic and provided support worth over BGN 13 million. And now I know that many of you are sympathetic and help the needy both our compatriots and refugees from Ukraine, for which I thank you”, said Kiril Domuschiev. "We live in a time that requires us to be open-minded to people who are suffering and to the needs of society. KRIB has established itself as a key factor in maintaining socio-economic stability in Bulgaria and I deeply believe that it will continue to be so, and it depends on all of us together", said the Chairman of KRIB.
