Cultural diplomacy builds on the enormous potential of Bulgarian culture and artists and the place of Bulgarian culture in the overall picture of European cultural diversity. In the field of cultural diplomacy, we set ourselves the following objectives:
- To promote dialogue and cooperation with countries and international institutions of importance for Bulgarian foreign policy;
- Using the opportunities offered by Bulgarian culture to expand the country's international communication;
- Consolidating the cultural resources, including those of overseas representations and of Bulgarian cultural institutes and communities abroad, to achieve visibility of Bulgarian culture and its importance as a factor in the implementation of the foreign policy agenda.
The Bulgarian cultural sector, academic organisations and artists are a key partner of the diplomatic service in building relations of meaningful dialogue with civil society.
