SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria’s aim to join the ERM-2, the two-year obligatory precursor to the euro zone, within a year is a realistic timetable, European Commission Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis said on Thursday.

Speaking at a public debate in Sofia, Dombrovskis, who is also the EU’s financial services chief, said the commission supports Sofia’s accession to the ERM-2 and the process can start during its EU presidency that ends in June.
