Record Amounts Of Cash Sent Home

Record sums of cash have been sent home by those working abroad to

families living in Bulgaria it has been reported.

The survey by the Bulgarian National Bank began in 2004, and over the past few years have recorded the total amount of money being transferred from abroad into Bulgarian bank accounts.

This year so far the figures reached an all time high with just over 335 million Euros being transferred to families by those relatives living and working abroad.

It is thought that the total figures could be higher as the EU legalisation only register amounts above 50 000 Euros.
Around 16 % of Bulgaria's population work abroad, with 6% qualified specialists including 814 doctors a total of 1.2 million people. The main countries are Turkey, Greece, Spain and Italy.
