At his last Plenary Session ESC adopted a Resolution on "Possible directions for the development of the vocational education and training system in Bulgaria".

In its act ESC found different challenges to vocational training and education (VET) such as the loss of competitive advantages in vocational education and training of the workforce, especially in the field of new technologies, the lack of effective links between training institutions and employers, the inability to develop modern professional skills in a real environment, the lack of a system for regularly forecasting the needs of vocational education and training, as well as obsolete facilities and textbooks.

On 9 June 2017. The Commission on Budget, Finance, Insurance and Insurance called an extended meeting to discuss a draft ESC opinion on "Accelerating the preparations for accession of the Republic of Bulgaria to the Eurozone".

The consultation was attended by more than 20 members of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economy, the Institute for Economic Research and the Institute of Law of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the Fiscal Council, the Bulgarian Macroeconomic Association, financial experts and members of the ESC. They all expressed the view that the proposed draft opinion was timely and expertly prepared. By signing the Lisbon Treaty Bulgaria has assumed the obligation to become a member of the Eurozone, everyone stressed. The remaining question is when this should happen.

On 7 June, at its meeting, the Parliamentary Committee on Labour, Social and Demographic Policy examined the Economic and Social Council's Activity Report for 2016

ESC President Prof. Dr. Lalko Dulevski presented briefly the activities of the ESC focusing on the main acts adopted during the year, on the consultations held during their discussions as well as on the regional and national discussions in the country.
