Dutch term or phrase: ondernemerschap is in volle ontwikkeling
Intro to an article for a magazine with a general readership. Don't want to sound too positive, as it jars with the next sentence. Any suggestions welcome!

In de artikelenreeks over het samenwerkingsprogramma van Vlaanderen in Centraal- en Oost-Europa wordt in dit nummer Bulgarije in de kijker gezet. In de Balkan is het ondernemerschap in volle ontwikkeling. Trainingscentra voor kmo’s zijn onbestaande. De Bulgaren willen vooruit, zeker met de toetreding tot de Europese Unie in 2007 in het achterhoofd. Om deze lacune op te vangen en in het kader van het buitenlandbeleid ten aanzien van nieuwe EU-lidstaten, steekt Vlaanderen een handje toe. In Bulgarije werd o.m. steun verleend aan Vlaamse promotoren om een netwerk van trainingscentra voor kmo’s op te richten. Er is daarbij al een lange weg afgelegd maar toch blijkt verdere samenwerking nog altijd welkom.
