Note from Milen Ivanov, Chairman of CEO CLUB BULGARIA:

Last year, I had the privilege to participate in this program (slightly different) and must admit that this was one of the most exciting trips I’ve ever made both in personal and business sense. China is amazing in many ways and a must-visit especially for those that are interested to consider selling and buying anything internationally. When you are there, you realize that this is the new center of the world. At the same I realized that it is mega important to have a reliable partner if you are interested to do something in China, and IDF and WGDO are very good platforms and this event is a good opportunity to explore this. I strongly recommend this trip to anyone who’s ever thought to do some business with/in/from China.
