Agroindustrial Complexes and Personal Holdings in Bulgaria — Does That Mean a “Mixed” Policy?
The title originally suggested for this chapter was “Agroindustrial complexes and personal initiatives — Bulgarian mixed policy”. The implied description of Bulgarian agricultural policy as “mixed”, is not, however, proved. It needs some analysis and elucidation of the real processes. For this reason I have put the title in the form of a question which I will try to answer. My object is to explain the socio-economic charac-teristics of the Agroindustrial Complexes (AICs for short) and personal holdings in Bulgaria, to throw some light on the basis and degree of their compatibility and homo-geneity, to show the production results of the two kinds of farms and to assess their contribution to the national economic task of achieving “local self-sufficiency” and the further qualitative improvement of the food consumption of the whole Bulgarian people.
