The Director of the United International Bureaux for the Protection of Intellectual Property (BIRPI) presents his compliments to the Minister for Foreign Affairs and, in accordance with the provisions of the Stockholm Act of the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, has the honor to notify him of the declaration made by Bulgaria on January 11, 1968, at the time of the signature of that Act, and transmitted by the Government of Sweden, the terms of which are as follows:

"The People's Republic of Bulgaria declares that it will admit the application of the provisions of the Protocol Regarding Developing Countries to works in respect of which it is the country of origin in regard to developing countries which, becoming bound by Article 5(1)(a), have made the reservations authorized by the Protocol."

Pursuant to Article 5(2) of the Protocol Regarding Developing Countries, this declaration became effective from the date it was deposited, that is, on January 11, 1968.
