26.5 million is the number of payment cards Poles carried in their wallets at the end of last year, 11.1 percent more than in 2006, according to central bank data.

The British-Polish Chamber of Commerce (BPCC) handed out awards to its member companies at a gala ceremony held at Warsaw's Hyatt hotel April 21. All BPCC member companies were eligible for the annual awards in six key categories. The prizes were handed out on the first day of the BPCC's annual conference, entitled "Leadership-Vision-Business."

"This ceremony is a celebration of both the companies' achievements and also our chamber's success [in being named] as the best British Chamber of Commerce in continental Europe," said David Thomas, BPCC chairman. "We are proud of our awards, which recognize both innovative achievement and excellence," he added.

The chamber's Business Development Award went to PM Group Polska, which is part of the largest Irish engineering consultancy group, PM Ltd. PM has been operating in Poland since 1997. The Customer Care Award was given to the Hilton Warsaw Hotel & Convention Centre. The Community Impact Award was won by Tesco Polska. Tesco is the leading British investor in Poland and operates 300 stores in this country. The Staff Care Award went to Euromost, a company of project managers and construction cost managers involved in commercial, industrial, residential and specialist building developments. The company has worked on a number of the high-rise construction projects which have contributed to the shape of Warsaw's modern skyline.

Wroc³aw was named Most Business-Friendly Region. The city and region have become a magnet for foreign direct investment and the city is developing as a leading business and meetings destination. The Business of the Year award went to Wierzbowski Eversheds, one of Poland's leading legal service providers.

The title Hotel of the Year was won by Melia White House, owned by the Spanish Sol Group, located in Regent's Park, London.
