Israeli President Moshe Katsav and Bulgarian counterpart Georgi Parvanov said Monday that their countries must do more to boost economic ties and promote two-way investment. "Bulgaria and Israel have good traditions in cooperating in spheres as agriculture, food industry, tourism ... but there are many other opportunities," Parvanov told a forum of senior businessmen of 15 Israeli and 80 Bulgarian companies.
