At official ceremony, held on 5 December at the Sheraton hotel, the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry announced its annual awards. Representatives of the government, members of the cabinet, diplomats and business people, journalists, attended the Awards presentation.

This tradition dates back from 1994. The importance of the awards which the Chamber delivered for the 13th consecutive year, is due to the participation of 5 000 companies that are the most active in the Bulgarian economy and the use of objective evaluation criteria.

The companies participating in BCCI’s “Top 100” and “Top 300” classification for this year form 55 % of the GDP of our country and realize sales revenues to the amount of 67 billion BGN for the year 2006.

BCCI’s awards are based on classic criteria, applied in FORBS and FORTUNE’s world classifications – ending the year with profit, growth in sales revenues, effective investment of own resources, good marketing and good name.
