Summary/Abstract: The relationship between economic, social, environmental, geopolitical and technological risks as well as the studied relationships is discussed: exogenous factors – systemic risks, economic inequalities – macroeconomic policies, public interests – economic priorities and analyzed opportunities (regional and national – Latin America, EU, Bulgaria) to correct any inconsistencies in this respect. A model for predicting bankruptcy risk for Bulgarian companies is proposed based on a linear multidimensional discriminatory analysis as well as studies of cluster initiatives with a comparative analysis of the structure and development of clusters in Bulgaria and EU-wide. The challenges and prospects for „green“ management of small and medium-sized businesses – comparatively in Bulgaria, France, Italy, Lithuania and Slovenia – and the impact of policies at different structural levels – local, territorial, national, integration communities – and the role of advisory services, the application of concrete approaches to the competitiveness of firms and international trade chains that are capable of offsetting risks.
