image: And the winners are And the winners are A record number of 76 companies had applied for the Swedish Business Awards 2012 and three were nominated in each of the four Award categories. Thursday, October 18th the winners were announced at the Awards ceremony in Tallinn’s Russian Theatre:

Sustainable Growth Award - in cooperation with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Estonia:

Palmse Mehaanikakoda

Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year - presented by the Swedish Institute: Rimi Eesti Food

Young Entrepreneur of the Year - presented by Swedbank:

Indrek Rebane - Hedgehog

Environmental Award - presented by Ragn-Sells:

KOKO Architects

- During September and the beginning of October, I’ve been working together with Janar Sutt and his team at the Swedish Trade Council in Tallinn encouraging companies to apply for the Swedish Business Awards and also promoting the Awards ceremony. It was great to see that the outcome was a record number of applicants and a very well filled up Russian Theatre, says SCCE’s trainee, Kaire Papp.

The Awards ceremony was opened by President Toomas Hendrik Ilves who held a very informal speech. Being born in Sweden, he focused on the close relations between our two countries.

- We have now entered new good Swedish days. There was a time when Estonia was referred to as a FSU – Former Soviet Union, when it should instead have been FSE – Former Swedish Empire, said a smiling President Ilves referring to the 150 years when Estonia was under Swedish rule, an era known as ‘the good old Swedish days’.

Looking at Ambassador Jan Palmstierna and Gunnar Oom, State Secretary of the Swedish Minister for Trade, President Ilves added that it wouldn’t do the eurozone any harm if a certain country across the Baltic Sea, also having its public finances in good order, would join.

A full report on the Swedish Business Awards 2012 will follow in the next issue of focus, the magazine of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Estonia.
