Bulgarian News Agency

The Bulgarian News Agency ( _bg. Българска телеграфна агенция; abbreviated БТА, BTA) is the national news agency of Bulgaria. It was founded in 1898 through a decree of Knyaz Ferdinand of Bulgaria during the government of Konstantin Stoilov.

The Bulgarian News Agency is the main source of information for the Bulgarian media and the country's governmental institutions. The agency's latest statute, regulating its activity, was adopted in 1994. The agency is a member of the European Alliance of News Agencies.

BTA issues "Daily News", the only English-language Bulgarian daily, as well as the weekly "Bulgarian Economic Outlook", also in English. In Bulgarian, the agency issues the established weekly magazine "Paraleli", the monthly culture-related magazine "LIK", and "100%".
