to the Prime Minister and Chair of Parliament of Bulgaria

Your Excellency

I have been working with colleagues at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences continuously since June 1990. I have the privilege to have met BAS scientists of the highest international calibre. I have seen local boys and girls transforming into competent scientists and acquiring international recognition. I have seen the struggle for survival in the years which followed 1989.

I truly believe that their scientific output is not only valuable for the international community, but it is also indispensable for the progress and prosperity of Your country.

A true friend of Bulgaria,

Dennis Bonatsos
Director of Research
