As part of the first edition of the Dobra Firma 2020 Programme, seven statuettes were presented at the gala at the Best Western Efekt.

Cezary Kaźmierczak, the President of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers, comments: “As part of our activity, we wish to distinguish the best Polish companies and entrepreneurs who, in spite of the difficult conditions for development, consistently strive forward, implement innovations, and provide stable, employee-friendly jobs. It is thanks to such companies that the Polish economy is handling the current economic crisis better than others. For the last 10 years, all of us at the Union have been actively working towards improving the operating conditions for companies in Poland. We initiate many and support all initiatives aimed at eliminating from the Polish legal system any and all restrictions on economic activity that exceed EU requirements, thus levelling the competitive opportunities between Polish and European enterprises.”
