Prince Charles Awarded Six Bulgarian Companies the BBLF Business Standard

The Prince of Wales personally awarded the Business Ethics Standard of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum to six companies, which have declared their wish to sign and adopt it. Prince Charles handed the Standard to the managers of the six candidate companies during his second official visit to Bulgaria at the first annual conference "Practical Management of Business Ethics" in Sofia.


The Managing Board of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum, established in 1998 by the Prince of Wales and then Bulgarian President Stoyanov, created a special Business Ethics Standard, outlining ten main principles of business conduct hoped to turn into a milestone for the development of the Bulgarian business.


"Todoroff" wine-cellar, first private Bulgarian RADIO FM+, baked products producing Pain D'or, IT leading company TechnoLogica, Hebros Hotel and luxury men's ware producing company Denyl had the honor to receive the Standard personally from Prince Charles.


The Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum (BBLF) is associated with The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum, initiated by HRH The Prince of Wales at an international business leadership meeting in Charleston, South Carolina, which he convened in February 1990.


"For all those 1588 days (since the BBLF existed), Sir, we were fully committed to the original ideas of the International Business Leaders Forum founded by you," Maxim Behar, Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum Chairman said at the conference.

He recalled that Simeon Saxe-Coburg, Bulgarian prime minister, has always supported the Forum's projects and activities. He assured the prime minister, who also attended the conference, that BBLF supported the current government in their "efforts to create better business environment and at the end of the day - better life for Bulgarian people and better future for the democratic Bulgaria."


The chairman Maxim Behar also said that the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum saw its logical development only together with the other Forums established the Prince of Wales - Czech, Polish and Hungarian. He announced that under his initiative the chairmen of these Forums will have their first meeting in Prague and will discuss their joint future activities within the framework of IBLF.
