Bulgaria has always found herself at historic crossroads - for centuries, caught between the Romans and the Byzantines, the Russians and the Ottomans. Yet, from Paissii to Levsky to Botev to Vazov and Yovkov, intellectual creativity has always helped Bulgaria surmount adversity and maintain both a unique perspective and build national identity. Today, Bulgaria is poised to show the world how new technologies can be used in innovative and beneficial ways - if she can avoid the mistakes that are being made throughout Western Europe and North America. I'd like to share four observations that I hope will make your country and your community stronger and more successful by turning historic adversity into a business advantage.
