During this meeting, Professor Bozukov expressed his delight to be hosting the 40th Congress of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine in Sofia on 29 May to 2 June 2017, and emphasised the excellent collaboration that exists between his country and the OIV.

Jean-Marie Aurand thanked the Bulgarian Minister for organising the Congress. This event – set to bring together hundreds of experts and leaders in the global vitivinicultural sector – is to be hosted by a Member State where vitiviniculture is inseparable from the country's history and culture, and has seen a thorough revival.

The Director General also praised the quality of the collaboration between the teams on both sides working to make this Congress a success.
