Bulgaria Shipping Report Q1 2016

Bulgaria Shipping Report Q1 2016

BMI View: In 2016 the port of Varna is set to see tonnage growth of 2.8% y-o-y, a fairly significant fall onthe forecast 14.0% gain of 2015. The key reason for this is the sluggish performance of the economy, whichwill continue to grow below pre-crisis historical averages. Private consumption will continue to be thestrongest growth component in the economy, but we forecast small expansions in this indicator, of only1.4% in 2016 and 1.6% in 2017, tempering our shipping forecasts.

The business environment remains challenging, with high levels of corruption and inefficiency.Significantly for the shipping industry, lower oil prices are reducing the incentive to invest in domesticproduction as import costs fall, thus hampering export-led shipping.
