Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning the annual review of Bulgaria for 1974. The report covers personnel changes in the Bulgarian government, which remained stable under the leadership of Todor Zhivkov -- celebrations marking the thirtieth anniversary of the socialist revolution in Bulgaria -- and a party conference, at which the main theme was the raising of labour productivity. Further commentary covers developments in the Bulgarian power industry and transportation -- the failure of construction projects in Bulgaria -- Bulgarian housing shortages -- agricultural issues caused by drought -- and improvements in the country's standard of living. The report also covers developments in Bulgarian foreign affairs -- an acceleration of integration with the Soviet Union -- and improvements in Bulgarian relations with the West. Further information is provided on Anglo-Bulgarian relations -- the development of Anglo-Bulgarian cultural initiatives -- and efforts to improve Anglo-Bulgarian trade. A calendar of notable events in Bulgaria during the year is also included in the report.
