ABOUT THE NETWORK
On April 20th, 2004 the European Commission accepted a message (COM(2004) 196) regarding the application of information and communication strategy of the European Union. The message includes a new “map road” to create a second generation local information networks under the name of EUROPE DIRECT, which will replace the existing system of information points “Europe” and information points “Junction/Crossroad” in the rural regions.
After the Bulgarian adherence to the European Union it was possible to establish offices in Bulgaria.
The Bulgarian Network is known as Europe Direct and is orientated to a wide circle of citizens of the European Union.
