The bilingual Bulgarian-English edition is dedicated to the activities and contribution of prominent Bulgarian politicians, scholars and businesspeople to the development of bilateral relations between Bulgaria and Belgium over the past twenty years.

In the eventful and personal history of the relations between the two countries, the awarding of prominent figures with high state awards is quite common. The book presents the individual efforts of each of the awarded Bulgarians, as part of the joint efforts to strengthen the common European home through the development of relations between Bulgaria and Belgium.
