Bulgaria is less developed than the Uk
Bulgaria joined the EU in 2007.It is less developed than the UK for example:
IN 2007 Bulgaria had a GNI per head of $11 180 and the UK had a GNI per head of $33 800.
Life expectancy in Bulgaria is six years lower (73 compared to 79)
The HDI for Bulgaria is 0.824 whereas its 0.947 for the UK.
Here are a few reasons why Bulgaria is less developed than the uk:
The climate is temperate and there aren't many droughts. This creates good conditions for farming
The UK has good trade links- the UK has been a major trading centre for hundreds of years
The UK has well developed manufacturing and service industries
The climate is temperate but there are droughts in summer and high snowfall and storms in winter. This makes farming difficult
