The American Chamber of Commerce in Poland celebrated its 20th anniversary with a glamorous ball Oct. 23 at the Marriott Hotel in Warsaw. This year’s event had a 1950s and 1960s theme. Among the prominent politicians and businesspeople at the event were Minister Michał Boni, Prof. Leszek Balcerowicz, Wrocław Mayor Rafał Dutkiewicz and parliamentary deputy Paweł Poncyliusz.

As each year for the past seven years, the Chamber gave out its AmCham awards to American companies operating in Poland. This year’s awards went to General Motors, Fluor SA and Henry McGovern. McDonald’s received a special award to mark the company’s 20 years in Poland. Balcerowicz picked up an award after being named Economic Politician of the Last Two Decades, while Jerzy KoĽmiński, a former ambassador to the United States, was named Ambassador of the Last Two Decades.

AmCham also gave an award to Wrocław and its mayor for the city’s investor-friendly atmosphere. The award was collected by Dutkiewicz.

A special award went to Mac Raczkiewicz, the first President of the American Chamber of Commerce, who in 1990 was one of the founding members of AmCham Poland and was president for the following 14 years.
