The Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) opens Wednesday a National Press Club in the southern town of Samokov. The ribbon will be cut by Vice President Iliana Iotova, BTA Director General Kiril Valchev, Regional Governor Radoslav Stoychev and Mayor Vladimir Georgiev in the presence of representatives of the state and local authorities, heads of cultural institutions, journalists and friends of BTA.
The official opening event will take place on an important day for the town: on this day it celebrates the 110th anniversary of the Battle of Bulair. The town is planning to mark the occasion with a fireworks display and a performance of the Representative Ensemble of the Armed Forces in the local community centre.
So far BTA has not had a full-time correspondent in the town, but there were correspondents covering the entire Sofia district, including Samokov.
