Said Velizar Sokolov, the Managing partner of ARSIS Consulting: “We are really thankful that the Bulgarian Customs are doing very good job in detecting and seizing counterfeits at the Bulgarian borders. Initiatives such as the IP roadshow are an excellent way to get everybody up-to-date with the latest trends in anti-counterfeiting and ease the work of the officers by providing support on how to successfully identify suspicious products. We are really proud to partner with the Bulgarian Customs Agency on this initiative.”
