Business entrepreneurs shown appreciation
Heads of the most successful companies have been awarded the title Person of the Year
Among the award holders are those who’ve managed not just to remain afloat in the present difficult economic climate but also to significantly strengthen their position in the market. A Chinese guest, Li Haixin, the Director General of the Industrial Park Development Company, is one of those receiving the award. He has twenty years experience in the field of design and construction, and is personally responsible for twenty engineering projects in China. At the moment, Mr. Haixin is working on a major local development and declared it was a pleasure to receive an award in Belarus. He has no plans to rest on his laurels however, as much work lies ahead, “My key goal is to promote the Great Stone project in the international arena, whilst offering qualitative services to interested companies. So far, over 30 firms have expressed their desire to join the Belarusian-Chinese Industrial Park which aims to become an exemplary project of the Silk Road Economic Belt.”
This year, the Person of the Year contest celebrates its twentieth anniversary, attracting an incredible number of high-tech, export oriented and import substituting companies. Among them are BeSmart JSC (developing the ERIP payment system), the Bank BelVEB (supporting several major projects such as the construction of the Ostrovets nuclear power station) and Tabak-Invest JSC.
The business-magazine DELO editorial board comprising authoritative entrepreneurs, economists and representatives of the various ministries, has chosen the best of the best. The board is headed by an academician, a Doctor of Economic Sciences and a Professor, Piotr Nikitenko. Addressing the awards ceremony, he stressed that the winners of the awards are progressive, artistic and strong-willed personalities who do not wait for external support but rely on their own strength and logical analysis of market conditions. More importantly, these people have a driving passion for their business.
