“Currently, environmental protection is the greatest global challenge, a major matter of interest for us all."
Members of Swisscham Hungary have demonstrated their individual commitment as well as joint responsibility for a sustained conservation of nature. Another symbolic message by tree planting was the desire that the activities of the Chamber should continue growing like the trees will grow. The Chamber wishes to remain the recognised professional forum of Swiss-Hungarian relations with swift responses to any changes in economic life.” – said Dr. István Béres, President of Swisscham Hungary.
István Kocsis, Ambassador’s Interim Deputy at the Swiss Embassy also gave a welcome speech at the anniversary tree planting.
“In the past 25 years of Swisscham Hungary, innovation was on the top of the agenda, however, the 25th anniversary of the Chamber has highlighted sustainability. I am delighted by the idea of tree planting, a symbol helping us properly celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Chamber, even during the pandemic.”
At the event, Gergely Karácsony, Lord Mayor of Budapest, emphasized the environmental action of Swisscham Hungary.
“When we show our commitment towards the future and not just by words, but by actions, we also send an important message to Hungary. I express my thanks to all partners who are here. We have a symbolic, but important alliance in making Budapest a greener and more innovative city” – stated the Lord Mayor.
Swisscham Hungary has member companies all over Hungary, from Sárospatak to Szentgotthárd, however, the centre of joint work is in Budapest, that is why “Népliget” Park was selected as the location. Főkert Zrt. cooperated in the tree planting. They will take care of the trees.
