Message from the Program Leader

Essentially, last year’s report gave us an overall picture of positive expectations in a testing environment. On the one hand, the CFO Confidence Index, which we included for the second time, showed a significant 29-point rise in economic confidence over last year. On the other, there were some real worries about the quality of the business environment in which companies had to operate last year. However, a clear majority of CFOs had real confidence in their own abilities and in their companies’ business model and strategy. It will be very interesting to see how CFOs expectations are reflected by the events across our region of the next 12 months.

Deloitte CE CFO Survey report 2017

We are pleased to present the 8th edition of the Deloitte CE CFO Survey report, tracking the latest thinking and actions of CFOs representing largest and most influential companies in the region.
For Bulgaria the survey was held for the 6th time, following the Central-European questionnaire and methodology. CFOs were asked to share their expectations in three major areas: economic outlook, business environment outlook and companies’ growth outlook.

This survey paints a picture of an increased confidence across the CE region. CFOs in Bulgaria also enter 2017 in better spirits than any time since the last 4 years. The brighter mood represents improved prospects for the CFOs own businesses and the economic growth. Strict cost control is still to keep an eye on, however the openness to introduction of new products / services is now more visible.
