750 billion dollars is how much OPEC countries will earn in profits from oil exports in 2010, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

The Confederation of Polish Employers (KPP), one of the oldest and largest employer organizations in Poland, marked its 20th year in existence in November.

The organization brings together more than 7,000 businesses, from the smallest firms to the nation's largest companies. Eighty-five percent of the member businesses are privately owned. KPP members provide employment to a combined 2.5 million workers.

The anniversary celebrations culminated Nov. 25 with a conference focusing on the government's Poland 2030: Development Challenges report, which outlines a strategy for the country's development in the next 20 years.

The conference summed up a series of 10 regional debates organized by the KPP and called "Employers and Poland 2030." At these meetings, economists, academics and businessmen voiced their views on 10 key issues discussed in the government report. According to the KPP, the main aim of the debates was to propose ways of achieving the goals outlined in Poland 2030: Development Challenges.

Later in the day, at a special anniversary event at Warsaw's Wielki Theater, the Confederation of Polish Employers handed out its Vector and Super Vector awards to individuals, companies and institutions that have contributed to the development of the Polish economy and entrepreneurship over the past two decades, setting an example for others to follow.

Former Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki collected the Super Vector award, while the Vector awards in various categories went to the late ex-labor minister Jacek Kuroń, entrepreneurs Ryszard Krauze, Leszek Czarnecki and Jan Kulczyk as well as the Warsaw Stock Exchange and Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper.

President Lech Kaczyński, who attended the awards ceremony, said that the KPP and other employer organizations as well as the banking sector have helped stave off the threat of a deep crisis in the country.
