Greeting Addresses

The President of the Republic of Bulgaria

Dear Mrs. Genova,

On behalf of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria Mr. Rumen Radev, I would like to thank you for inviting the head of state to honor the official opening of the 21st Balkan Mathematics Olympiad for students up to 15.5 years of age. This event can greatly benefit both personal and professional contacts between the participants from the Balkans, Europe and Asia, and the importance of Varna as European Youth Capital in 2017.

Unfortunately, the President of the Republic of Bulgaria, Mr. Rumen Radev, would not be able to attend this prestigious forum due to his busy schedule.

I would like to express my gratitude to the Union of Mathematicians in Bulgaria, the regional department of the Ministry of Education and Science - Varna, Varna Municipality and the High school of Mathematics „D-r Petar Beron“ – Varna.

For the hard work, they have put in organizing the competition. The high achievements of Bulgarian students at all the Olympiads held so far as well as the results in mathematics and computer science in the primary and secondary education are due to you-their teachers, scholars and specialists working for higher quality education.

I wish success to the participants in the 21st Youth Balkan Olympiad in Mathematics.
