Buzek Gets Award
A panel of judges appointed by the International Group of Chambers of Commerce in Poland (IGCC) awarded the Golden Euro Prize 2010/11 to Jerzy Buzek, the former Polish prime minister who recently ended his term as president of the European Parliament.

The prize goes to the individual who in the previous year was deemed to be the most active in promoting social and economic development in Poland and the European Union as a whole.

“Quite a few excellent candidates were nominated, but in the end most votes converged on a personality who has a true vision for a future, united Europe,” said Cristiano Pinzauti, chairman of the jury.

The chairman of the IGCC, Kenneth Morgan, said, “Prof. Buzek has demonstrated throughout his very successful career that he really acts in the best interest of the people of Poland and indeed Europe. On behalf of the foreign investment community in Poland, Prof. Buzek is a most worthy winner of this award.”

The prize was handed to Buzek at a ceremony at the Hyatt hotel in Warsaw May 18.
