9 international companies distinguished for their leadership and direct investment in Poland – and 8 Polish companies for their successful international expansion.

The independent Jury of 30 Commercial Counselors from Embassies (as well as Country-specialist Desk officers, Inward Investment experts, and international bankers) voted Wednesday night to award the following companies.

Their decisions were based not only on the amount of new investment and number of newly-hired employees in Poland, yet also on the firm's innovativeness, strategic importance to the Polish economy and leadership within its industry.

8 Polish companies were distinguished for their exceptional international expansions, either via take-overs or greenfield, in such markets as the United States, China, Spain, Germany and France.

From the Chinese Embassy, Mr. Yang, Second Secretary gave the keynote address, opening the Awards ceremony with remarks about the growing attraction of Poland to Chinese investors.

Martin Reichel, Management Board member, HSBC Bank Polska S.A. welcomed guests, and highlighted HSBC's global network and ability to help both Polish companies expanding in such key markets as China, Germany, UK and the United States – as well as support for international trade and inward investment to Poland.

More than 150 top executives attended from a wide range of industries including Aviation, Manufacturing, IT, Transportation/Logistics, Retail, Consumer Goods, Real Estate development, BPO/Outsourcing and Pharmaceuticals – and from 27 countries.
