In his address to the laureates of the ECL annual award, the president of the ECL Vitālijs Gavrilovs said: “We would like to express our gratitude to those employers, who with their high level of conscientiousness towards their work and patriotism towards their country promote not only the growth of their businesses, but also economic development of Latvia. The more outstanding and accountable entrepreneurs we have, who with their success stories inspire other entrepreneurs to follow suit, the more rapid the growth and the higher the level of welfare in our country.”
