NASO participated in Working Group on Social Economy Meeting
A meeting of the Working Group on Social Economy was held at the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy on 16 June 16, 2017, where NASO is invited to participate as an observer on a regular basis. This was the Group's first gathering after expanding its membership with new permanent members, including the National Alliance for Social Responsibility. For the first time the meeting was chaired by Deputy Minister Sultanka Petrova, who will be responsible for the social economy sector in the current government’s mandate.
The tasks of the Working Group to be performed by the end of the year were specified and its members proposed to which actions and initiatives of the 2016-2017 Social Economy Action Plan pay more attention and which ones to implement in the coming months. The draft of the next year's Action Plan is to be drawn up and be ready in autumn, and the work on the Social Economy Bill will be resumed. The NASO members will be informed about the discussions held and are expected to draft and put forward proposals.
