The British Polish Chamber of Commerce (BPCC) was named best British chamber in continental Europe for a record fourth time in a row during an awards ceremony in London March 4. The award was presented by high-flying entrepreneur Stelios Haji-Ioannou, best known for setting up low-cost airline easyJet.

David Thomas, BPCC chairman, and Martin Oxley, the chamber's chief executive officer, collected the award before an audience from 24 countries, government officials and industry figures. "It is a great honor for us to receive this award for an unprecedented fourth time. The competition has been very tough this year," said Thomas.

Oxley said that no chamber had won the award more than once apart from the BPCC. "The secret of our success is innovative events, such as seminars and conferences for our members, and excellent service," he added.

The best chamber of the year prize is the most prestigious of the annual Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Continental Europe awards, given for performance excellence.

Chambers from 24 countries representing over 6,000 businesses took part in the event. The awards jury includes senior figures from government and industry circles.

The British Polish Chamber of Commerce was set up in 1992 and now has 470 members. The chamber says it represents over 20 percent of the total foreign direct investment to have come to Poland since 1990.
