The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s board of directors approved a new strategy for Bulgaria on Wednesday which pledges continued support for the early closure and decommissioning of four units at the Kozloduy nuclear power station.

The EBRD said the strategy will guide the bank’s investment and policy engagement in the country during the next five years. It also said one of the government’s priorities is the development of nuclear capacity.
