Summary:This Selected Issues paper on Bulgaria investigates possible driving forces behind the investment boom based on cross-country evidence. The diagnosis of the drivers behind the investment boom is important as it is key to assessing Bulgaria's economic prospects, vulnerabilities, and policy challenges.

The paper also investigates why Bulgaria's GDP growth rate did not respond more strongly to the investment boom
