The Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum celebrated its 10th anniversary on Thursday with a dinner and a charity ball, held at the Hilton hotel in Sofia.

The collected funds in the amount of BGN 21,000 will be donated for in vitro procedures for disadvantaged Bulgarian families, the Executive Director of the Forum Stamen Tasev announced.

Participants in the event included the Ambassador of Great Britain to Bulgaria Steve Williams, and Henry Jackelen, UN Resident Coordinator/UNDP Resident Representative for Bulgaria.

Adam Leech, the new Executive Director of the International Business Leaders Forum for the Prince of Wales was a special guest of the event. This was Leech's first trip to Bulgaria.

The Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum was established in 1998 by 12 companies and with the support of His Majesty the Prince of Wales and the then Bulgarian President Petar Stoyanov. In 10 years the Forum has grown to 220 companies, non-governmental organizations and individual members, creating successful social projects and actively publicizing the idea of corporate social responsibility.

The Forum also develops significant education projects and bestows annual "Responsible Business" awards.

In 2001, the Forum created the Business Ethics Standards that became a model for ethical behavior in the business environment. Currently over 1,500 companies in Bulgaria have adopted the Business Ethics Standard and use it as a main guideline in their corporate behavior.
