Polish President Bronisław Komorowski has received an award from the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Poland (CCIFP) for his contribution to the development of Polish-French relations.

The award, called the CCIFP Grand Prix 2011 special award, was handed by the chamber’s president Maciej Witucki to Olgierd Dziekoński, a senior official at the President’s Office, during the CCIFP’s annual awards ceremony Feb. 3.

The ceremony brought together CEOs from companies that are the largest French investors in Poland, representing a combined 14.3 billion euros in foreign capital.

This was the third time that the chamber handed out an award to an individual whose work has contributed to the development of closer relations between Poland and France. Komorowski was praised for boosting political, economic and cultural ties between the two countries.

While presenting the award, Witucki stressed the importance of Komorowski’s efforts in boosting ties within the Weimar Triangle, a group made up of Poland, France and Germany. The president’s work shows that tripartite relations between Poland, France and Germany should be strengthened so as to inspire other countries to jointly build a stronger and more innovative Europe, Witucki said.

He also thanked Komorowski for lending his name to this year’s celebrations marking100 years since Polish-born physicist and chemist Marie Curie-Skłodowska won the Nobel prize for chemistry.

Dziekoński read out a letter from the president in which Komorowski pointed out that relations between Poland and France have a tradition going back centuries and said he wanted to emphasize the importance of these ties by choosing Paris as the destination of one of his first foreign trips as head of state. In the letter, Komorowski also said that the CCIFP plays an important role as an organization that helps French entrepreneurs develop on the Polish market while also supporting Polish exporters in France.

The French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Poland is an association of employers that brings together more than 330 French and Polish companies. For 17 years the CCIFP has been working to help Polish and French investors by acting as a platform for cooperation and exchange of business experiences and best practices among businesses.
