Ambassador Mustafa Says Independent Media Are Vitally Important

Ambassador Mustafa delivered opening remarks at a Solutions Journalism Conference in Sofia. Ambassador Mustafa stressed the vitally important role independent media play in a democratic society. “Bulgarians have many reasons to be optimistic.  In just the few weeks that I have been here, I have met so many people who are committed to doing good things for the country. This includes entrepreneurs who have chosen to stay and build their businesses here.  This includes young civil servants who believe that corruption has no place in a modern government.  And this includes journalists who believe that independent media outlets are critical to a democratic society.”
