Bulgaria expands its Open Data Portal
A total of 149 datasets are expected by the end of this year

The Bulgarian Council of Ministers approved the publication of a prioritised list of datasets. Currently the European Data Portal harvests 4,903 Bulgarian datasets. By enforcing Decision No. 436, the Bulgarian Open Data Portal will publish 149 new datasets by the end of this year.

Priority was given to national datasets, as well regional and local ones. National Open Data will be added in the domains of health, crime and justice, education, finance and accountability, environment and tourism. Regional Open Data will be complemented with datasets on the activities of district commissions and councils, for instance in the field of construction, tourism and public procurement. Bulgarian municipalities will provide new datasets on education, environment, finance and transport.
