Mr. Atanasov briefly presented the new Strategy for the development of the FSC for the period 2022-2024 as a basic and important tool for achieving the set goals and expected results. “The facts about the results achieved so far, presented in the report for the previous period, presented on the official page of the FSC, show that the Strategy of the FSC is well formulated and the main priorities and set sub-goals are being implemented. The strategy of the FSC for the upcoming period is aimed at several main priorities, with the ultimate goals being the reduction of  administrative burden, flexibility and adaptability to the business environment, and optimization of processes through digitization.”
During the round table discussions, he also announced the upcoming presentation of the new institutional site of the FSC and the Commission’s mobile application, the purpose of which is to facilitate users in the process of obtaining information about regulations in the non-banking financial sector. Boyko Atanasov also described the functions of the Innovation Hub, providing a single point of contact with FinTech companies. It was clearly emphasized that the establishment of a unified information system for submitting and receiving information from supervised persons in an electronic standardized format is also in progress.

“We act as a referee, not a player. In detail – we aim to create conditions for equality in the criteria for access to capital markets and opportunities for fair competition between participants. When we give trust and fair treatment, we get trust and fair treatment. This should be the basic principle of functioning not only of the Commission, but also of any other state organization. The governance style should be authoritative, not authoritarian.” Mr. Boyko Atanasov also stated.
