Abstract

The paper reviews Bulgaria's inter-governmental finances and the process of fiscal decentralization during the early transition (1990-95) from centrally planned to a market economy. The paper discusses salient features and reform issues in tax assignments, inter-governmental relations, expenditure assignments, sub-national borrowing, and transfers. Based on Bulgaria's experience, the paper draws implications for other countries in transition from socialism.
