BOROVETS Cheap Andrea Conti Jersey , Bulgaria, March 18 (Xinhua) -- The deep snow in recent months has contributed to very good sales at Borovets, the second largest ski resort in Bulgaria, industry insiders have said.

Luba Klenova, director of marketing and sports activities for the company Borosport, which is a concessionaire of the 24 ski runs and operator of the 15 ski lifts at Borovets, said this season had been fruitful.

According to Luba, the exact percentage increase of tourists would be calculated after the end of the season Cheap Andrea Bertolacci Jersey , but it was already clear that due to the heavy snow, the season was going much better than last year, when the snow was limited and the weather was very warm.

Blagovestka Tomova, head of the union of hoteliers and owners at Borovets, said the resort, which is a year-round destination located in the Rila mountains just 70 km from Sofia, has 27 hotels and several apartment hotels and villas Cheap Andre Silva Jersey , with a total of 8,200 beds.

She said the conflict situation in Ukraine had influenced the resort's attendance records by decreasing the number of Russian and Ukrainian tourists, but the decline was offset by the very strong growth from the Balkan countries including Macedonia, Serbia, Romania, Greece, and Turkey.

"These are markets that seem to like rediscovering Borovets resort, and have very significant growth in recent years Cheap Alessio Romagnoli Jersey ," Blagovestka said.

Tomova, who is also general manager of Hotel Rila, the emblem of Borovets, said most of the guests in the hotel were Britons, followed by Bulgarians, and people from the Balkan countries.

Among the advantages of Borovets, Tomova said, are the beautiful nature, the quietude, and the good ratio between the number of beds and the capacity of the ski facilities that can serve 15,000 people per hour, which means that even skiers who are not staying at the hotels in the resort can comfortably practise their favorite sport.

Elitsa Varadinova from Sofia has been coming to Borovets since childhood, and now she frequently visits the resort with her husband and their 6-year-old son.

"It is pretty close to Sofia Cheap Alessandro Guarnone Jersey , which is a good option for sports," she said. "I also like the nature, not only at Borovets, but the whole nature in Bulgaria."

"The facilities and the runs have got better over the years, and the prices are more affordable compared to other countries," he concluded.

KIGALI, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Rapidly increasing urbanization of African cities has placed significant pressure on the continent's economies in terms of solid waste management which requires the adoption of appropriate technologies, most of which are not readily available in Africa, experts said Tuesday in Kigali, capital city of Rwanda.

Speaking at an interactive session dubbed "Papers on Solid Waste Management and Liquid Waste Management" on the sidelines of the 2nd edition of Africa Engineering Conference, panelists pointed out that the inability of African countries to make efficient use of their waste through re-use poses a serious challenge to waste disposal on the continent.

Rwanda hosts the conference from Sept. 25 to 29 under the theme "Effective Waste Management in Africa," which focuses more on promoting professional engineering in Africa to drive infrastructure growth.

"African countries need to adopt a set of appropriate technologies that will assist them to convert waste into re-usable assets. Total system planning Wholesale AC Milan Jerseys , which involves developing the most suitable mix of infrastructure and services to manage the solid waste," said Aime Muzola, CEO of Rwanda's Water and Sanitation Corporation Authority.

He added that the refusal of common waste management practices in Africa by environmentalists has made the disposal of various waste streams in the cities a lot more difficult.

At the meeting, participants pointed out that poorly built storm-water drains in most African cities are frequently clogged by solid waste, leading to flooding and water contamination, posing a health risk to urban dwellers.

According to the World Bank, the worlds' cities in 2012 generated 1.3 billion tons of solid waste, amounting to 1.2 kilograms per person per day.

With rapid population growth and urbanization around the world Cheap AC Milan Jerseys , municipal waste generation is expected to rise to 2.2 billion tons by 2025.

The five-day conference was organized by Rwanda's ministry of infrastructure in collaboration with the Institute of Engineering Rwanda and Federation of Africa Engineering Organizations. It has attracted about 1,000 delegates, including government officials, consultants, and civil society in general together with local, regional and international engineers, accordi.
