Institute for Market Economics (IME - Sofia)

IME is the first and oldest independent economic policy think tank in Bulgaria. Its mission is to elaborate and advocate market-based solutions to challenges citizens of Bulgaria and the region face in reforms. This mission has been pursued sine early 1993 when the Institute was formally registered a non-profit legal entity (Registration # is: Reg. #831344929 - March 15th, 1993, 729/XI/VI, p. 169.) IME objectives are to provide: independent assessment and analysis of the government's economic policies and to be a focal point for an exchange of views on market economics and relevant policy issues.
